The project at Ternium's Shreveport facility consists in a second coil coating paint line with annual capacity of 120,000 tons. The project will increase Ternium’s production capacity in the US by 53 percent. The coil coating process consists of cleaning, treating and painting flat sheet metal that is rolled into coils. The investment in the Shreveport facility is the latest addition to Ternium’s goal of providing a full menu of state-of-the-art options for the metal building industry. Construction of the project will commence in the first quarter of 2022 and requires an investment of USD 98 million. Ternium expects commercial operations at the added production line to begin by mid 2024.
