American Tube Manufacturing renamed Atlas Tube – Birmingham

August 21, 2017

CHICAGO (August 21, 2017) — Zekelman Industries announced today that American Tube Manufacturing has been officially renamed Atlas Tube – Birmingham. The change reflects the ownership position from the acquisition of American Tube Manufacturing in February 2017 and integration of the Birmingham plant into the Atlas Tube operating system.

Atlas Tube – Birmingham now stocks an expanded size range of HSS products ready for nextday delivery in the southeastern United States — from .5x.5 up through 8×8. Operations will continue out of its current location led by Tom Muth, president of HSS and piling at Zekelman Industries. “With a larger variety of HSS sizes available for faster delivery in the Southeast, and improved customer service, Atlas Tube – Birmingham complements our long-term strategy of continued growth in the HSS market,” said Muth. All Atlas Tube customers will now have a single point of contact for all Atlas Tube facilities.
