Written by Sandy Williams

Ashland, Ky., will get a welcome infusion of jobs from Danieli USA after the closing of AK Steel Ashland.

DanieliLogoDanieli has rented a 130,000-square-foot building near the AK Steel mill and will operate a repair and refurbishment center serving steel producing clients in North America. The Italian firm is one of the world’s largest suppliers of equipment and plants to the metals industry. Danieli has provided equipment and services to Nucor, Steel Dynamics and Commercial Metals, among others.

Danieli Service will provide 61 new jobs for the region and plans to open in late 2021. Danieli’s investment in the facility is estimated at more than $12 million.

“This company is a great fit for Ashland and Northeast Kentucky given the workforce expertise in the metals industry,” said Gov. Andy Beshear.
