Indiana Harbor West steel plant

Report summary

Cleveland-Cliffs' Indiana Harbor West steelworks produces a mix of hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil and hot-dipped galvanised steel (HDG) products. The plant was formerly owned and operated by LTV Steel. Indiana Harbor West has two blast furnaces (BFs), #3 and #4, though just #4 is currently operational. On 28 September 2020 Cleveland-Cliffs and ArcelorMittal USA entered into a definitive agreement whereby the former acquired almost all of ArcelorMittal’s operations in the US for approximately US$1.4 billion. Indiana Harbor West was included in the transaction. In late March 2020, Indiana Harbor West's previous owner ArcelorMittal announced the closure of BF #4 following the coronavirus crisis. A few months later, in August, the company opted to restart the furnace due to improved market conditions.
