Portuguese company to locate first U.S. facility in Memphis
MSS Steel Tubes USA LLC officials announced the company will invest $6 million to locate its first U.S. production facility in Memphis, creating 129 new jobs as it establishes new operations on Outland Road. The Memphis location will position MSS Steel Tubes to better serve its U.S. customer base of solar panel manufacturers by providing a more cost-effective and efficient way to meet and exceed both production and delivery times. MSS Steel Tubes USA LLC is a subsidiary of MSS Steel Tubes SA, which is based in Portugal, with a participation from Metalogalva Group, from Portugal, and Soufer Group, from Brazil. Once MSS Steel Tubes becomes operational in Tennessee, Metalogalva Group will employ more than 1,800 people across its production facilities in four continents.
