CMC Steel Formally Dedicates New Durant, OK Micro Mill

On behalf of everyone at R.E. Warner & Associates, we congratulate Commercial Metals Company on formally dedicating its new micro mill in Durant, Oklahoma.

The mill is CMC’s second technologically advanced micro mill that uses a continuous-continuous manufacturing process which melts, casts and rolls steel from a single uninterrupted strand, resulting in higher yields and lower energy consumption than the traditional mini mill process.

We are honored to have been able to serve CMC on this project, providing preliminary engineering, structural, civil, electrical and mechanical installation engineering, and construction administration services.

Congratulations again to CMC and the entire project team for
working together to design, construct and commission this state-of-the-art facility.

2017 Outlook for Metals Industry Looks Good

Should proposed federal regulatory changes and infrastructure investments materialize in 2017, the metals industry should be seeing a revival in demand. R.E. Warner is ready to help our steel and other metals clients capitalize on this boom with consulting engineering services for all facilities needs – from the construction of new steel mills, to the modernization of existing mills, to routine maintenance.

Anticipated Changes

Here’s how the anticipated initiatives could play out:

President Trump has made a call for an ambitious infrastructure program – “highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals” – a key part of his acceptance remarks. Investment in infrastructure serves as a powerful economic engine that creates jobs and promotes economic opportunities. Infrastructure projects will require steel for reinforcing bars, structural shapes and fabrications of new equipment. More steel means more mining; thus, construction equipment made by companies like Caterpillar and John Deere will be needed. Estimates of $500 million to as much as $1 trillion have been estimated as to what will be spent, but not starting until the third quarter of 2017.

President Trump just this week signed an executive order to ease restrictions on oil and gas projects, which means more investment in pipelines and drilling. In addition, the Keystone […]
