The Lee Steel Corporation determined in late 1999 that a new steel processing service center was needed in Wyoming to service customer demand and market growth. D.J. Maltese was selected as construction manager to build this new 75,000 SF facility.
The new facility includes high-end offices, a research and development laboratory, and the steel processing center.
One of the most notable characteristics of this facility is the addition of a patented Herr-Voss steel slitting line with a strand extensioner. This slitting line has a 70,000 pound coil capacity and there are only seventy-five (75) such slitters in the world.
