CHICAGO (September 12, 2012) — Wheatland Tube Company, a division of JMC Steel Group, will be appearing on an upcoming episode of the Fox Business Network's "Manufacturing Marvels®," a series that showcases leading American manufacturers spanning various industries. The episode airs on September 17, 2012, between 8:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. CST, and provides new insight into the long-standing steel pipe company and a behind-the-scenes look at the Wheatland Tube facility.
"We are very excited to be featured on 'Manufacturing Marvels,'" said Frank A. Riddick III, CEO of JMC Steel Group. "We are proud of our companies and 'Manufacturing Marvels' is a wonderful opportunity to showcase JMC Steel Group's rich history and Wheatland Tube's commitment to ensuring that our products are 100% Made in America — from the raw steel we purchase to the employees and facilities that manufacture our products."
The Wheatland Tube spot on "Manufacturing Marvels" was shot on location at the original Wheatland Tube facility in Wheatland, Pa., which began manufacturing steel pipe products in 1931. The video discusses Wheatland Tube's position as the only steel tube manufacturer in North America to use the continuous butt-weld process, and highlights its leadership position across its comprehensive product portfolio, addressing challenges it faces due to the influx of foreign product into the U.S.
