US company TMS International Corp has expanded its scrap yard operation in Taichung, Taiwan to accommodate growth in its raw materials segment. The scrap yard operation started in early 2011.|
The Taichung operation covers sourcing, importation, processing and distribution of raw materials to domestic steel mills in Taiwan. Its current throughput capacity is almost double the earlier one, which enables the company to meet rising local demand for steelmaking raw materials. Besides, the scrap yard location lends itself to complementing the company's networks of existing procurement operations in China, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore as well as Taiwan.
TMS International is the parent company of Tube City IMS Corp, a leading provider of outsourced industrial services to the world's steel mills.
