In July AM/NS Calvert announced its intention to expand operations at its north Mobile County facility to produce a high strength and highly formable steel, according to Troy Wayman, vice president of economic development for the Mobile Area Chamber.

The estimated capital investment of more than $87 million includes about $77 million in machinery and equipment and would incorporate nearly $24 million in locally sourced construction labor and engineering services. Company officials say the expansion is expected to create six new jobs with an average annual wage of $65,000.

Specifically, the proposed expansion would include the following components:

  • Batch annealing facility
  • Continuous anneal line improvements
  • Hot dip galvanizing line upgrade
  • 40 metric ton upgrade
  • Automatic test line
  • Lase protection building
  • HDFL inspection
  • Inspection sitting line cold inspection

AM/NS Calvert, with more than 1,600 employees, has been investing significant capital in its facility. In 2014, the company announced it would hire 16 people and invest $70 million to increase its slab yard storage area.
