Dearborn steel plant

Report summary

Cleveland-Cliffs' Dearborn plant produces hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil, hot-dipped galvanised (HDG) and electro-galvanised (EG) steel products. The plant is focused on producing high-strength, light-weight steels. Dearborn has one blast furnace, "C3", which holds a hot metal output rate of 2.5 Mtpa. On 3 December 2019 Cleveland-Cliffs and AK Steel entered into a definitive merger agreement whereby the former acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of AK Steel common stock. The deal, valued at approximately US$1.1 billion, saw Cleveland-Cliffs’ shareholders owning 68% of the combined company with AK Steel’s shareholders the remaining 32%. At the beginning of April 2020, Cleveland-Cliffs announced the closure of BF "C3" following the coronavirus crisis. A few months later, in July, the company opted to restart the furnace due to improved market conditions.
