The goal is to fully ramp up the bar mill, which produces one- to three-inch angles and one- to four-inch flats, by April. The Harriman facility, located about 40 miles west of Knoxville, will use billets from ArcelorMittal LaPlace.

PS Venkataramanan, CEO of ArcelorMittal Long Carbon North America, said in a statement: "This is an exciting development for the ArcelorMittal family and the Harriman region, serving as another indication of the strength and resiliency of American manufacturing and the United States steel industry."


The Harriman facility closed in 2011 because of poor market conditions, the company said.

The light structurals mill has 250,000 st/year of capacity, according to the Association for Iron and Steel Technology. ArcelorMittal told Platts the facility "will operate in line with market demand and not at full capacity for the foreseeable future."

ArcelorMittal will work with the United Steelworkers to bring the mill back online, and the company plans to hire 61 new employees at the facility in the next two years.
