Steel Mill Services Illinois

Steel Mill Services Illinois

The global steel industry continues to be as important as ever. And while the United States may only be responsible for producing five percent of the world’s steel, considering that there is 1.7 billion tons of steel produced annually, five percent is no small number.

Steel is important for a myriad of industries, and is used for building and infrastructure, mechanical equipment, production in the automotive industry, for domestic appliances, by the shipping and rail industries, and more. Indeed, most businesses within the manufacturing industry need steel.

At Scrap Metal Services, LLC, we are proud to be one of the leaders in the steel production industry, and maintain steel mills throughout the United States. If you live in Illinois, our Illinois mill has the capacity to handle all steel production and processing tasks.
