Evraz Idling Claymont Operation in Delaware
 
Due to subdued market demand and the high volume of imports, Evraz will suspend operations at its steel mill in Claymont, Del. Over the next two months, about 375 employees will complete processing and shipping of existing products and prepare the mill for idling. Evraz executives say they will consider restarting the operation as soon as market conditions improve.

Evraz doesn’t expect any adverse financial effect on its operations in North America as a result of this action, and customers of the Claymont mill will be served by other facilities in Portland, Ore., and Regina, Saskatchewan.

"We appreciate our employees’ efforts to operate Evraz Claymont as efficiently as possible," says John Zanieski, executive vice president, Flat Products and Recycling. "Unfortunately, market conditions continue to be challenging, and low market visibility makes it difficult to foresee when positive changes will occur.”

With the help of the governor’s office, the company is evaluating options for resuming operations at the Claymont mill. “We value the support we have received from the governor, the state of Delaware and the community of Claymont over the years, and appreciate their continued support during this challenging time,” says Zanieski.

Evraz Claymont makes steel plate and custom plate products for industrial customers. In the first half of 2013, the company produced 171,500 metric tons. For full-year 2012, the mill produced 348,000 tons.
