A New Haven-based copper processing company is rebranding its name as it nears the completion of a $16 million plant expansion.
Now known as SDI LaFarga COPPERWORKS, the plant reclaims scrap copper, refines it, and then produces copper rod and wire.
The company said during a six-month process it listened to customers, employees, and suppliers to learn who it is and what sets it apart from competitors.
“To go through the immersion process with all those closest to us and hear what makes us who we are has been incredibly inspiring,” said SDI LaFarga president Kurt Breischaft. “We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our new branding, as we continue to grow and provide our customers with even more product options and expertise.”
Breischaft said SDI LaFarga COPPERWORKS has nearly completed an expansion that will allow it to hire additional staff, produce copper 24 hours a day and increase capacity by 250 million pounds annually.
SDI La Farga LLC is a joint venture between Fort Wayne-based Steel Dynamics Inc. (Nasdaq: STLD) and the La Farga Group based in Barcelona, Spain
