Cold-Rolling and Galvanizing Plants Closing

Cold-Rolling and Galvanizing Plants Closing

Wednesday, December 10, 2008
 
ArcelorMittal will permanently close its cold-rolling and galvanizing plants in Lackawanna, NY, and Hennepin, IL, inline with its plans to reduce North American output by 40 percent. The firm’s decision to close the two facilities is partly due, it says, to rising costs to transport the hotband coils from other mills for processing. The NY mill, which operates a continuous pickling line and a galvanizing line, will close April 30, 2009. ArcelorMittal has not announced a timetable yet for closing the IL mill.
