Steel Technologies, a North American steel and aluminum processing company, is a key supplier to the automotive industries in Tennessee. The company’s newly completed 80,000 ft2 expansion project expands the facility to 163,000 ft2. The plant now houses the most advanced combination of coil-fed automation and high-speed laser cutting for surface-sensitive metal blanking. The company’s flat-rolled steel products are also sold to the appliance, garden equipment, agricultural, construction, office furniture, and consumer goods industries.
PENETRON ADMIX SB, a crystalline waterproofing admixture, was added to the concrete mix to protect the plant’s below-grade retaining walls and foundation slab from the groundwater levels at the site. The Smyrna plant’s concrete structures are now resistant to concrete deterioration caused by water penetration, chemical attack, and corrosion, while withstanding hydrostatic pressure from the groundwater.
