Lakeside Steel Inc. selected a site in Thomasville, Ala., to build a $7.5 million state-of-the-art heat-treatment and end-finishing facility. The new facility will enable Lakeside Steel to upgrade and process the high value-added American Petroleum Institute-certified J, L, N and P grades of OCTG products that it produces and which are required throughout the majority of drilling operations in North America. The plant will be located approximately five miles from the company’s new casing mill currently being constructed in Thomasville.
