International Steel Group Inc. (ISG) has announced plans to restart its idled 110-inch plate mill located at the company's facility in Burns Harbor, Ind. The mill is expected to begin production early in the second quarter of 2005 and to employ an additional 80 employees at the facility, ISG's largest plant.
The mill is capable of producing carbon, high-strength low-alloy, and alloy plate. Applications for these products include rail, construction, shipbuilding, and machinery. The ISG Plate Division also is a major supplier of armored plate products that are used to protect the U.S. Armed Forces.
The Burns Harbor plant employs approximately 3,700 persons. It is one of five raw steel-making facilities owned and operated by ISG.
