ThyssenKrupp Steel USA Starts Coated Production

ThyssenKrupp Steel USA's new mill in Calvert, Ala., produced the first coated prime coil on its No. 1 hot-dip galvanizing line March 31, marking a milestone for the company. The HDGL lines are the last of the carbon steel startup's mills to begin production. The facility's hot-strip mill began production last July, followed by its cold-roll mill in September.

Consisting of four lines when fully operational, the HDGL applies various zinc-based rust preventive coatings to carbon steel coils to be primarily used in the automotive, construction and appliance industries. When the three remaining HDGLs begin production later this year, the facility will be fully operational, providing a comprehensive list of carbon steel products including hot-rolled bands and pickled coils, full-finished cold-rolled, as well as galvanized, galvannealed, aluminized and Galvalume products. The company will also produce a full range of steel grades to include mild steels, high-strength and advanced-high-strength steels, as well as high-carbon and structural steels.
