US Steel restarting Granite City Works in IL because of tariffs

Granite City Works will be restarted after announced tariffs on steel imports

This morning in metals news, Pittsburgh-based U.S. Steel announced it plans to restart a blast furnace facility in Illinois, Trump talks tough to European Union and Chile's trade surplus is powered by strong copper exports.

On the winning side of President Donald Trump's plans to impose a 25 percent tariff on imported steel are USA steel mills with excess capacity that can be restarted, albeit with a significant delay, to meet increased demand.

Bob Miller, chief executive officer of the USA operations of Novolipetsk Steel PAO NLMK.MM , knows exactly how his business and workers will be affected - and it is not good news.

Company leaders praised President Trump for his decision to increase competition among different companies, adding that steel imports threaten this country's economic and national security.

Higher U.S. tariffs on imported steel will mean more jobs at some American steel mills but raise the risk of layoffs at others, industry executives said on Wednesday. "We appreciate and thank the USW leadership and membership for their passionate efforts around the Section 232 investigation as well as in support of the restart process at Granite City Works".
