Harriman steel facility to reopen, add 61 new jobs


HARRIMAN (WATE) - ArcelorMittal executives announced today the company plans to reopen its Harriman facility, adding 61 new employees over the next two years.

The Harriman plant closed in 2011 due to poor market conditions. ArcelorMittal's goal is to have the plant fully operational by April 2014.

ArcelorMittal will ship steel billets from its sister facility in LaPlace, La. by rail to the Harriman facility. The billets will be heated and rolled into light structural shapes and merchant bar in the finishing mill. The rolling mill will have an 180,000 ton capacity using a 16 stand in-line bar mill with automatic finishing equipment. The facility will operate in line with market demand and not at full capacity for the foreseeable future.

Job applications will be accepted from Jan. 2 to 9 at the Tennessee Career Center at Rockwood, located at 1082 N. Gateway Ave., and also on the Tennessee Department of Labor website.

An open house will be held at the Tennessee Career Center at Rockwood on Jan. 9 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. to allow interested parties to learn more about the company and its operations.

ArcelorMittal is the world's leading steel and mining company, with a presence in more than 60 countries and an industrial footprint in over 20 countries.
