NAS celebrates USD 244M expansion at Carroll County

North American Stainless (NAS) celebrated the one-year mark since the company announced a USD 244M expansion at its Carroll County facility, a project creating 70 full-time jobs.
The expansion to the company’s 4.4 million-square-foot Ghent facility consists of a new cold rolling mill, new roll grinders, extensive upgrades of anneal and pickling lines to support the new rolling mill, a new temper mill and the expansion of the melt shop building. The expansion presents NAS with the opportunity to counter subsidized imports. The project also increases NAS’ annual total production capacity.
The building foundation construction is underway for the melt shop and excavation for the cold rolling mill foundations is underway. Site preparation for the skin pass mill has also been completed.
NAS offers a full range of stainless flat including slabs, billets, plate, sheet and strip, as well as long products including wire, rods, angles and rebar. All of NAS’ production lines are located at one site, which allows the company to avoid inherent delays that are common in mills.
