According to Indian parent company JSW Steel Ltd.’s fiscal second quarter 2023 results, production and sales of slab and hot-rolled coil at JSW Steel USA in Mingo Junction, Ohio, all declined sequentially and on-year. Total crude steel production and HRC sales were down by roughly half.

Revenues from the Ohio operation, which produces HRC, were also down by nearly half, while operating EBITDA was down more drastically, with fiscal Q2 results in the red.

The company’s plate and pipe mill in Baytown, Texas, posted slightly better results for the quarter, with plate production and sales declining sequentially but showing year-on-year (YoY) growth. While production of pipe products was higher, sales were still lower.

The Baytown mill’s revenue from operations and operating EBITDA were lower than the previous quarter but showed YoY growth.

JSW’s Baytown mill produces carbon steel plate and large diameter DSAW pipes.

In its quarterly earnings report, JSW noted that consumer demand in the US is being impacted by declining real disposable incomes and rising interest rates.
