New Cold Mill, Galv Line Coming to Severstal Dearborn
Severstal North America has launched a new five-stand, six-high, 72-inch-wide coupled pickle line tandem cold mill at its plant in Dearborn, Mich. The new $450 million facility is expected to ramp up to full capacity of 2.1 million net tons within six months.
“The launch of our new cold-rolling complex is a key component in our goal of becoming one of the world’s most efficient and advanced steel producers,” says Sergei Kuznetsov, CEO. “The new equipment will enable us to offer products of superior quality and provide exceptional service to our customers, as well as produce the next generation of advanced-high-strength steels for automotive applications.
The launch of the PLTCM is complemented by the construction and impending start-up of a modern, $285 million hot-dipped galvanizing line in the same production complex in Dearborn. The new coating line, scheduled to launch in December, will target critical exposed applications for automotive customers and other cold-roll-consuming manufacturers.
