as full hard products. Phase II of the site expansion includes an additional investment of approximately $500 million to install a second furnace, caster, pickle line, and coating line. It is hoped that these improvements will more than double the mill’s output by late 2009 or early 2010. The planned expansion will raise production to roughly three million tons per year. “The achievement we celebrate at SeverCorr results from the cooperative spirit that has marked this project from the beginning,” said Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour. “I am proud of how this outstanding company and its local, regional and state partners worked together, solving problems with the determination to get the job done. Now, with high-tech, high-skilled, high-paying jobs for Mississippians and a very bright future, this facility has launched operations that will boost the economy in both this region and the state as a whole. It’s a tremendous success story.” According Alexey Mordashov, CEO of SeverCorr’s strategic partner OAO Severstal and an international steel industry veteran, this mill is one of a kind. “We are excited to be a part of its development,” he said. “America is a very important focus for SeverStal, and we are confi dent about its growth prospects and have high expectations for SeverCorr.” have had a longstanding presence and commitment in the southern US and Mexico. We strongly believe the market will continue to grow, and we look forward to working closely with SeverCorr to expand our collective business in a targeted and responsible fashion.” Heidtman Steel is a world leader in marketing fl at-rolled carbon steel products sold through its 16 processing facilities, the newest of which is at SeverCorr’s mega-site. “Heidtman Steel is proud to be chosen as a business partner by SeverCorr,” said John Bates, chief executive offi cer. “The opportunity to place a state-of-the-art processing facility on the same campus with a new worldclass steel mill is exciting.” The new site is able to produce 1.7 million tons of high-quality steel each year and manufactures materials for use in the automotive, building, agricultural, pipe and tube, and appliance industries. The location was chosen because of its access to major road and rail transportation and an electrical power infrastructure to supply a plant to melt, pour, and form more than 50,000 tons of steel every week. Started as the brainchild of six steel industry veterans who aimed to create a next-generation steel mill, SeverCorr is the joint venture of SteelCorr and SeverStal, an international Russian steel fi rm with substantial assets in metallurgy, mining, automobile manufacture, machinery, transportation, and other businesses. SeverCorr’s cold mill began production in August 2007. Its fi ve-stand tandem cold mill is one of only four cold mills in the US coupled to a pickle line and is the only one capable of producing coils up to 72” wide. Total capacity of the line is over 1.2 million tons, of which 650,000 tons will be used to produce cold roll products including commercial, drawing, deep drawing, interstitial-free ultra-low carbon, and micro-alloyed grades of steel, as well SeverCorr 112 May 08 Partnering with Burkhalter Rigging of Columbus, Mississippi, equates to found money by SeverCorr. Burkhalter innovation utilized a local boat dock and made it suitable for receiving the mill’s huge and extremely heavy components—which fractionalized delivery projections. SeverCorr achieved business excellence by adopting Burkhalter’s single-source strategy—one company for start-to-fi nish logistics, rigging, lifting, and multimodal transport to the SeverCorr construction site.
