On April 27th, 2012, Independence Tube celebrated its newly rebuilt and upgraded mill with a Grand Re-Opening Celebration. Independence Tube was hit by an EF 5 tornado on April 27th, 2011. During the past year Fite Building Co. and a multitude of sub-contractors and vendors have worked tirelessly to rebuild the devastated plant. Now, one year later, Independence Tube is back on-line bigger and meaner than before. Congratulations to all that work so hard on this very unique and challenging project.
