ArcelorMittal Idles Galv Line at Indiana Harbor
 
Multiple reports indicate ArcelorMittal has idled the No. 2 galvanizing line at its Indiana Harbor facility. Additional plans reportedly are in place to shut down the electric arc furnace at the site’s long carbon facility and the aluminizing line.

Employees were informed of the decision, though plans were in place to reassign them to other operations at the facility in East Chicago, Ind.

Production from the EAF would be replaced by the company’s plants in Canada and Germany, which reportedly produce billets for up to $200 less than those produced at Indiana Harbor.

An ArcelorMittal spokesperson said no decision was made on the aluminizing line, and the company is in talks with the union about the future of the long carbon EAF.

ArcelorMittal has been in the process of shifting production schedules and sourcing to integrate the Calvert, Miss., mill it acquired from ThyssenKrupp in February. The Calvert finishing mill is a joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel.
