Stripco is to expand its site in Mishawaka, Indiana, USA.

The flat rolled steel processor and cold rolled strip producer will add three new annealing bases and a building large enough to more than double existing annealing capacity.

Rad-Con will provide the 100% hydrogen batch-annealing equipment.

Stripco will also continue its use of hydrogen-recycling technology in the expanded facility.

Each new annealing base accommodates 100t with a stack height of 205 inches. Coils can be up to 0.375inches thick, 72 inches wide, and weigh 50000 lbs.

Construction has begun on the nearly 10000ft2 addition to Stripco’s existing precision cold roll strip facility
