SINTON – Steel Dynamics has selected Sinton to be its new location for a brand new $1.7 billion steel mill, according to an announcement made by the Corpus Christi Regional Economic Development Corporation on Monday.
The area was one of three possible locations up for consideration, along with Louisiana and New Mexico.
According to the CCREDE, the new mill is to have an anticipated annual production capacity of approximately 3 million tons with the capability to produce advanced high strength steel products. The estimated $1.7 billion investment will make the development achievable, and will directly create around 600 high earning jobs opportunities and an abundance of opportunities for indirect employment growth for other support service providers.
