MISA Metal Processing, Inc. (“MMP”) was formed in 2013 by combining three previously stand alone toll processing companies that were part of the Marubeni-Itochu Steel America, Inc. (“MISA”) group. MMP is a 100% wholly owned subsidiary of MISA.
Our Kentucky operation was founded in 1986 in Winchester, KY followed by a second facility that was added in 1996 in Louisville, KY. In 2006, the Winchester facility was closed and the Louisville location was expanded which has two slitters. The Tennessee operation was founded in 1991 in Portland, TN with two slitters as well.
The Alabama operation started out in 1997 as the MISA Metal Blanking (MMB) plant in Howell, Michigan. MMB expanded its territory by opening a new plant in Birmingham, Alabama in 2003. In 2012, the Michigan facility was closed, and the Birmingham location was expanded. The following year it became part of the MISA Metal Processing merger.
In 2015, MMP constructed a greenfield operation in Forest, MS with one slitter. Today, MMP operates five slitting lines and two blanking lines in four states servicing customers in the Southeast and Midwest United States.
