CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - April 01, 2013) - JMC Steel Group announced today that the name of their DOM product line has officially been changed back to Sharon Tube.
"Sharon Tube has always been recognized as the highest-quality producer of DOM tubing, and has won numerous awards from customers attesting to this," said Barry Zekelman, CEO of JMC Steel Group. "Now that we've built the world's most modern precision tube manufacturing facility, increased our size range and doubled our capacity, we can deliver even greater value to our customers."
In preparation for the official launch, the facility in Wheatland has made a significant investment to become the world's most modern DOM manufacturing facility. This facility includes a completely automated pickle and lube line, a new draw bench, an annealing furnace and a finishing line complete with advanced nondestructive testing equipment. These upgrades will support the expansion of the size range capability -- up to 9.000" OD.
The new Sharon Tube will be headed by President Bill Perrine. "The expansion of our size range will enable us to meet the needs of our customers with Sharon Tube's trademark customer service and quality reputation," said Perrine. "We understand that our customers need the highest-quality, globally competitive DOM product, and our new world-class equipment will meet this need."
