Congressional Steel Caucus Vice-Chairman Crawford Responds to Atlas Tube Announcement

5/5/2022

Jonesboro  Atlas Tube, a Chicago based company, announced they will open a new electric resistance welding steel mill in Blytheville, AR. This is the company’s second mill in the city and will double their Blytheville workforce.

Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01), Vice-Chairman of the Congressional Steel Caucus, released the following statement in response to this significant announcement:

“Northeast Arkansas has rolled out the welcome mat for another great steel investment,” said Rep. Crawford. “With a talented workforce and a thriving steel industry, it’s no secret why Mississippi County is poised to become the largest steel-producing county in the nation. I’m happy to see yet another great addition to the thriving steel industry in Arkansas.”

Rep. Crawford is the current Vice-Chairman of the Congressional Steel Caucus, on which he has served since 2017. During his time in congress, Rep. Crawford has testified in front of the International Trade Commission denouncing the dumping of steel by countries like Russia, while also advocating for a regulatory environment in which American steel can flourish and be a global market leader.
