PITTSBURGH, February 29, 2016 – Tube City IMS Corporation, a leading provider of outsourced industrial services to steel mills globally, today announced that it is changing its corporate name to TMS International Corporation. The name change reflects the company’s growing global presence.
“Our former name, Tube City IMS, represented a consolidation of different organizations, including Tube City Iron and Metal (Tube City) and International Mill Service (IMS),” said Raymond Kalouche, President and CEO. “Their proud legacies are the foundation of our current success. But as we move into our tenth decade of operations, we believe TMS International better reflects the company’s integrated operations and global status.”
Mr. Kalouche said while the company’s name is changing, its core business practices, values and expectations will not. “We will remain committed to working safely and providing the outstanding service our customers have come to expect. Further, we will continue to focus on growing our global market position by leveraging our business expertise and exercising sound financial discipline,” he said.
The new name is effective immediately and is being implemented across all of the company’s products and subsidiaries. The company’s website address has changed to www.tmsinternational.com.
