SSAB Americas, a division of Swedish steelmaker SSAB, will relocate the division’s head office from Lisle, Ill., to Mobile, Ala. Since 2001, the company has operated a steel mill in nearby Axis, Ala., which employs nearly 600 SSAB employees.

“Mobile is a growing community with a booming economy; we are excited to expand our presence in the area as a trusted employer and community partner,” says Chuck Schmitt, President, SSAB Americas. “Moving our team to Mobile will ensure that our senior leaders and support staff work in closer proximity to our front-line operations, where key decisions are made for our business and customers.”

The new office will be located in Mobile. More details will be announced over the coming months, with the transition expected to take place throughout 2018.

SSAB Americas also operates a second mill in Montpelier, Iowa. Altogether, the company has 2.4 million tons of production capacity at its two electric arc furnace facilities.
