The 200-acre Engineered Bar Products Division campus sits along Interstate 74 just west of Indianapolis. The mill itself is a 740,000-square-foot structure. The recent addition of a precision sizing mill from SMS-Meer enables the production of smaller-diameter SBQ concurrently with the production of larger-diameter SBQ.
 
A free-standing 150,000-square-foot bar-finishing facility offers customers a wide range of value-added services such as heat treatment, straightening, turning and polishing, bar inspection, and precision cutting. The bar-finishing facility has the capacity to process 300,000 tons of bars annually. With an annual production capacity of 950,000 tons, SDI’s Engineered Bar Products Division is among the largest single-site SBQ facilities in North America.
