Made in America for 100 years: TimkenSteel's Tryon Peak Plant


Editor’s Note: To close out our centennial year, we’re highlighting each of our facilities and its role in contributing to our long-term success. The first of our last two destinations this week to close out the series covers our Tryon Peak Plant!

The Tryon Peak facility leverages the core competencies of TimkenSteel’s business. The plant brings value to the supply chain for customers, combining full-length bar and seamless mechanical tubing with precision-cutting capabilities.

The concept for the Tryon Peak Plant was designed in response to customers’ growing needs to use cut rings and reduce in-house inventory. The site for the plant was selected in 1994, centralized in the southeastern United States in Tabor City, North Carolina, making it readily accessible to many of its industrial and bearing customers.

Just two years after it opened, the plant completed its first warehouse expansion. A year later, it expanded its warehouse again as well as its cutting operations, with a third expansion in 2004.

While getting larger as a facility, the plant zeroed-in on meeting its customers’ individual needs by developing customized inventory for specific requirements. By 2010, it had expanded its work with international distributors, meeting even more customer needs.

Today, the Tryon Peak Plant has more than 120,000 square feet under roof and is situated on 16 acres, including warehouse space for material storage for customers needing a just-in-time supply.
