U.S. Pipe Is on a Roll

While driving to the Birmingham airport just a day after touring U.S. Pipe’s new ductile iron pipe casting plant in Bessemer, Ala., one of our editors spotted this flatbed truck rolling down the highway.













Yep, those are the company’s very products on delivery to a customer. (And yep, our editor risked life and limb to snap this photo while driving.) Are these the same pipes we had seen come off the line of the Marvel City Mini Mill? Maybe not. But at least we know the guys at the plant weren’t lying to us. They’re at least making some sales.
