Steel Dynamics, Inc. announced the selection of Columbus, Mississippi, as the location for the company’s previously announced greenfield state-of-the-art, recycled aluminum flat rolled mill. Columbus is strategically located within the targeted Southeast market, bringing numerous competitive customer, recycled material and renewable energy advantages to the project. Final site determination is subject to the anticipated receipt of necessary permits and continued state and local government support.
“We are extremely excited to announce Columbus, Mississippi as the location for our new next-generation recycled aluminum flat rolled mill,” said Mark D. Millett, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. “We are eager to expand our presence in Columbus, and we deeply value the warm welcome and support that we have received from the community, officials, Governor Tate Reeves, and the State of Mississippi, as well as leaders from the Mississippi Development Authority and local leaders from the Lowndes County Board of Supervisors, the Lowndes County Industry Development Authority, the Lowndes County Port Authority, the Golden Triangle Regional Airport Authority, and the Golden Triangle Development LINK. We thank them for their trust, shared vision, and support for this important strategic investment. We believe the aluminum flat rolled mill itself will create 700 high-paying positions, and that abundant opportunities for indirect job growth of over 250 positions can be created from our customers and other support service providers, bringing additional meaningful economic growth to the surrounding communities.”
