Mittal Steel USA officially placed a new line into operation in Cleveland today to provide top-quality galvanized sheet steel to automakers and other demanding customers.
The new line is designed to produce in excess of 700,000 tons of corrosion-resistant sheet annually using the hot-dip galvanizing process — passing the steel through a bath of hot zinc.
The line will produce coated steel for exposed automotive panels and unexposed automotive components.
Its inaugural comes just over a year after Mittal Steel acquired International Steel Group.
– For automotive customers, this facility builds on Mittal Steels status as a premier automotive supplier and links the distinctive culture and capabilities of our Cleveland plant with the latest hot-dip galvanizing technology,” said Louis L. Schorsch
