Steel Dynamics (SDI), one of the largest domestic steel producers and metals recyclers in North America, announced Tuesday the successful restart on 28 July of its Sinton Texas Flat Roll Steel following an unplanned outage at the plant.

According to the company, the outage related to caster shear equipment issues, which 'the team has successfully addressed'.

SDI claims that it continued to operate Sinton's cold mill and downstream value-added flat-rolled steel coating lines during the outage.

Steel Dynamics produces steel products, including hot roll, cold roll, and coated sheet steel, structural steel beams and shapes, rail, engineered special-bar-quality steel, cold finished steel, merchant bar products, specialty steel sections and steel joists and deck. In addition, it produces liquid pig iron and processes and sells ferrous and non-ferrous scrap.
