Outokumpu Expands Stainless Bar Offerings

Finnish specialty steelmaker Outokumpu will enhance stainless bar production at its facility in Richburg, S.C. New capabilities include a new coil-to-bar line to cover bar sizes from 0.600 to 1.25 inches, and full reinforcement bar capabilities. The new lines will enable Outokumpu to better serve key customer segments in North America including automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, construction and chemical processing, the company claims. The investment increases Outokumpu’s stainless bar production capacity by more than 15,000 tons annually.

“The new investment allows us to expand our capacity in coil-to-bar peeling where we have been capacity constrained. The line utilizes hot-rolled coil bar feedstock that is straightened, peeled, chamfered and polished to finished bars. This new capacity helps us to expand our business in key growth markets including the important automotive segment where we have a strong position,” says Bob Beatty, head of Outokumpu Stainless Bar USA.
