November 20, 2007 — A new company, Warren Steel Holdings L.L.C., has begun operating at the former CSC Ltd, (and, previously, Copperweld Steel) mini-mill sites in Warren and Champion, OH, after a year-long refurbishment effort.
The company indicates it has a capacity for 800,000 tons/year of raw steel, casting rounds ranging in diameter from 8.25 to 12.5 in. A statement adds that it plans to expand that product range as market demand indicates.
