Mid Continent Nail Corporation Expands Its Poplar Bluff, Missouri, Manufacturing Plant

A bulk pallet nail manufacturer, Mid Continent Nail Corporation, a division of Mid Continent Steel & Wire, has undertaken a $5 million expansion at its facility in the Poplar Bluff Industrial Park in Missouri. The company plans to add 91 full time jobs to its workforce.

The company is the largest supplier of nails to the wooden pallet and crating industry with customers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

According to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, “Mid Continent has, over the past several years, expanded its bulk nail manufacturing capacity through the addition of 50,000 sq. ft. of production space."

The company added a 315,000 sq. ft. building located in the Poplar Bluff Industrial Park across from the Bulk Nail Plant to expand its collated nail production, the wire drawing processes, trucking and dispatch center, and the company’s offices.

In February, 2012, Deacero USA, Inc. acquired Libla Industries, Inc., dba Mid Continent Nail Corporation. Deacero, a family–owned company founded in 1952 in Monterrey, Mexico, is a leader in scrap processing, steel production, and mesh and wire products manufacturing with a presence in more than 20 countries in America and Europe, state officials explained.
