Mittal Steel USA names merged facilities

Chicago, IL— Mittal Steel USA, which was formed on April 15 by combining the former operations of Ispat Inland Inc. and International Steel Group, has settled upon names for its locations across the U.S.

The company is part of Mittal Steel Co., based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, which became the largest steelmaker in the world and the largest in North America as well, with its acquisition of ISG.

“There are many decisions to be made as we integrate the operations of these two successful companies to make the whole even more effective,” said Louis L. Schorsch, chief executive officer of Mittal Steel USA.
