SINTON, Texas — A $1.9 billion dollar steel mill is coming to Sinton.

Steel Dynamics announced they will be building its newest facility just north of town.

The facility will be a 1 million square foot flat roll mill.

The new plant will employ 600 people, at an average salary of $76,000 and produce around 3 million tons of steel annually.

It will also generate millions in revenue for Sinton, its school district, and San Patricio County.

KRIS 6 news reporter Greg Chandler will be getting reactions from the person who helped put the deal together as well as Sinton officals in reports later today on KRIS 6 News.
