Largest Stainless Steel Manufacturer in North America Expands

When the largest stainless steel manufacturer in North America was ready to expand their operations, East & Westbrook was a major part of their contractor team. As a direct-hire foundation contractor, E&W completed foundations for their Bar Furnace, Payoff Reel, Waste Water Treatment Plant, Roll Grinder, Substation and Melt Shop expansions.

Not only were these foundations large in scale in terms of quantity of materials, but the formwork and elevations were intricate and challenging. The project schedule and placement of anchors and embeds were critical. E&W’s technical capabilities and management skills helped keep pace with this massive expansion.

While E&W has worked on equipment foundations and steel manufacturing projects before this expansion and since, few will match the size and intensity of this project.

E&W did a magnificent job on the AOD foundation in the melt shop. I was fascinated they were able to achieve that on time, which was a big deal. It was outstanding that everything went smooth with no need to come back and saw-cut or make corrections. Everyone on the crew, from foreman to laborer, was pleasant and completely able to accommodate any request we had
at the drop of a hat. They did anything required to help.
