MMFX Technologies Corporation Secures Institutional Funding

IRVINE, CA | Posted on June 17th, 2008

MMFX has received $27 million of the financing and will receive the remaining $28 million upon the startup of its Welland, Ontario, Canada steel mill facility. The steel mill's state-of-the-art equipment is designed to manufacture both conventional and MMFX high-tech steel.

By using the higher yield strength of MMFX steel over conventional Grade 60 steel, construction projects can be completed with 20% to 50% less steel and up to 60% lower labor costs, changing the way buildings, highways, and bridges are designed and built.
