I/N Tek & I/N Kote
30755 Edison Road
New Carlisle, Indiana 46552
I/N Tek is a continuous cold-rolling plant that produces sheet steel of unmatched quality and consistency. A 60-40 joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel Corp., I/N Tek enables the combination of five processes that take 12 days or more to perform via traditional batch methods. By welding coils end-to-end, the plant can run them continuously through these processes — pickling, tandem-rolling, annealing, temper-rolling and inspection — in less than a day. I/N Kote, which is adjacent to I/N Tek, is a 50-50 joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Nippon, with separate lines producing 500,000 tons of hot-dip galvanized and galvannealed and 400,000 tons of electrogalvanized sheet annually.
The current configuration of I/N Tek breaks this once continuous process into two separate functions; continuous pickling and tandem rolling through the Continuous Descale Cold Mill (CDCM), and continuous annealing, temper rolling, and inspection through the Continuous Annealing Processing Line (CAPL) in order to give greater flexibility in providing material to I/N Kote for galvanizing or galvannealing.
The partnership produces 1.7 million tons annually through the CDCM and 1.2 million tons annually through the CAPL.
I/N Tek sits on about 200 acres of land, which it owns in fee, located near New Carlisle, Indiana. Substantially all the property, plant and equipment owned by I/N Tek is subject to a lien securing related indebtedness.
The plants are near New Carlisle, IN, about 60 miles east of ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor in East Chicago, Ind. Daily unit trains deliver virtually all of their feedstock from Indiana Harbor. The principal customers of I/N Tek and I/N Kote are automotive.
