Wheatland Tube Announces New Partnership with Michigan Seamless Tube
Agreement Drawn to Better Serve the A106 Marketplace
CHICAGO (November 15, 2012) — Wheatland Tube Company, a division of JMC Steel Group, is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Michigan Seamless Tube (MST) to jointly supply A106 seamless pipe to the marketplace. In this agreement, MST will market exclusively through Wheatland Tube. In turn, Wheatland will purchase all of its A106 supply (sizes ½" through 4") from MST and will capitalize on MST’s extensive sales network to sell into both the U.S. and Canada.
“This agreement brings together two great companies who are both determined to better serve the A106 market. It also allows Wheatland and MST to build on their strong heritage of producing products that are made and melted in the U.S.A., and continuing to create jobs for Americans together,” said Randy Boswell, V.P. of sales for Wheatland Tube.
“MST and Wheatland expect to continue to serve our combined customer base with the same high quality of customer service and product as has grown to be expected from these two outstanding companies,” added Ted Fairley, V.P. of sales and marketing for MST.
