The article states that Steel Dynamics Inc. will add production capacity at its Columbia City, Indiana, minimill allowing the plant to produce a higher volume of rail products and to add lighter structural shapes and merchant bars to its offerings. The mill expansion, in full operation, is expected to add capacity of about 600,000 tons per year and bring Columbia City's annual finished steel production capacity to about 1.6 million tons. Keith Busse, president and CEO, said that while this investment will expand the capacity of the Columbia City facility, they are not appreciably increasing production capacity for wide-flange beams.
