MARLTON, N.J. and SHREVEPORT, La., July 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, has announced that it has received a contract from Benteler Steel/Tube GmbH, a subsidiary of Benteler International AG, to provide construction management services in connection with a new $900 million steel pipe and tube manufacturing plant to be located in Shreveport, Louisiana. The plant includes a seamless steel tube mill and will be built on 330 acres at the Port of Caddo-Bossier in Northwest Louisiana.

"We are honored to have been chosen by Benteler to help them manage construction of their new world-class manufacturing facility," said Robert Ferguson, Senior Vice President and Southern Regional Manager for Hill's Project Management Group. "We look forward to helping them make this project successful," added Ferguson.
