Atlas Tube opened its second steel mill in Blytheville. The $150 million project is said to be the largest private investment in the U.S. steel industry in the last decade.
“Thanks to companies like Atlas Tube, Mississippi County continues to lead the country as a premier steel producer,” Governor Asa Hutchinson said. “Their $150 million will go a long way to improving the quality of life for Arkansans not only in Blytheville, but also the surrounding areas. We are thrilled to celebrate with Atlas Tube today and look forward to many great things ahead.”
Atlas Tube recently hosted a grand opening event to celebrate the new mill, where attendees were given a tour of the facility.
Officials said the new mill is expected to create over 75 new jobs in the community.
