Located on the south shore of Lake Michigan, Gary is US Steel's largest steel plant and produces hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil, hot dip galvanised (HDG) and electro-galvanised steel products. Most of the steel produced is sold to automotive, metal building components, home construction and appliance markets. Gary has four blast furnaces (BFs) — #4, #6, #8 and #14. In June 2019, US Steel announced it was temporarily suspending production at Gary's BF #8 due to weak market conditions. A few months later, the company restarted the furnace but, following the coronavirus crisis, opted to idle it back again in early April 2020. For the same reason, US Steel opted to idle BF #4 in late March and BF #6 at the beginning of May. As market conditions gradually improved in the US towards the mid-end of 2020, US Steel decided to bring all the three once-idled furnaces back online. BF #6 was restarted in July, #8 in August and #4 in December. In September 2022, opted to idle BF #8 one more time.
