As No. 1 mill at Lone Star Tubular Operations is close to officially restarting production, we are continuing our commitment to hire from within our community. As of early May, we have hired over 110 new employees and provided new job training for many of them. These new team members range from utilities and maintenance workers to non-destructive testing technicians, all of which will be an integral part of a successful restart and sustained productivity of the mill.

As the advent of manufacturing technologies continue to innovate the way we produce tubular products, many of the repetitive tasks in testing and inspection are getting a fresh set of helping hands. One example is a fully-automated gauging unit that is programmed to execute specific tasks. The unit is capable of conducting 100% thread gauging and inspection in a matter of seconds with the laser and magnetic apparatuses.
The restart process for Lone Star Tubular Operations No. 1 mill is moving along nicely, and we thought we would share a bit more detail on what it is capable of producing starting the third quarter of 2019. Additionally, find details below on the capabilities of our fully operational No. 2 mill.
