Tenaris reopens its local steel mill facilities

KOPPEL. Pa. — Tenaris S.A. celebrated the reopening of its local steel mill facilities in Koppel and Ambridge during a launch event at its Koppel melt shop, the company’s first steel mill in the U.S.

The reopening comes after the Koppel mill underwent $15 million in upgrades over the past year.

At the ceremony, the company’s U.S. president, Luca Zanotti, said workers have done excellent work to safely and efficiently bring these facilities back online.

“Ambridge is back, and our Koppel mill is producing to feed Ambridge and our Bay City, Texas, mill with a local supply of bars for seamless production,” Zanotti said. “The reactivation of our facilities in the Northeast gives us greater flexibility to serve our customers’ drilling projects in the different basins with domestically produced solutions and a short supply chain – this adds value and boosts efficiency.”
