Strategically located in Mississippi County, Arkansas, the largest steel producing county in the U.S.A., Calstrip is in a unique position to reduce inbound freight cost to near zero. Calstrip can now cover the states of Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana in a single-day truck shipment. Cities such as Dallas, Houston, Tulsa, St. Louis, Nashville, Louisville, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Charlotte, and many others are now reachable for Calstrip with cost-competitive freight.
When Calstrip Arkansas is completed and operational in Summer 2019, it will truly be a game-changer for Calstrip and our customers, taking Calstrip from the Borderland to the Heartland.
In September 2018, Calstrip began construction on a next-generation service center on the campus of Nucor Steel near Blytheville, AR. Phase One of this project is 105,000 square feet in size, but the 23-acre site will allow for expansion to 315,000 square feet or more. This new facility will offer the same slitting, sheeting, and multi-blanking capabilities as other Calstrip locations, with precut stock for JIT delivery.
At Calstrip Arkansas, the processing equipment will be directly linked to the Calstrip ERP system. Customer orders will be uploaded from the ERP system directly to the slitting and sheeting equipment for scheduling and set up. Dimensional and quality inspections will be entered automatically using Bluetooth connections between measuring devices and the machines, and verifications to customer specifications will be performed automatically to ensure the highest quality for customers. Automated packaging will round out the new plants capabilities, making it one of the most modern in the industry.
