A northwest Indiana steel fabricator will mark the beginning of construction today on a long-awaited relocation project. Munster Steel Co. Inc. announced plans two years ago to build a new multi-million dollar headquarters in Hammond. The family-run company, currently located in Munster, was founded in the 1950s and will retain its name.

When the move was announced in 2011, officials estimated the project to cost up to $6 million.

It will be located in the West Point Plaza Industrial Park and be part of additional road projects set to begin adjacent to the development.
