USS Mon Valley Works CRC ops back to normal

Written by Michael Cowden

U.S. Steel has resumed normal production of cold-rolled coil (CRC) at its Irvin Plant, part of the steelmaker’s Mon Valley Works in western Pennsylvania.

“Things are running well at Irvin,” a company spokeswoman said in an email to SMU. She did not specify when normal operations at Irvin Plant had resumed.

Recall that Mon Valley Works was slow to resume full production of CRC following a planned, 14-day outage in October.

Mon Valley Works is spread across several locations. Its furnaces are located at U.S. Steel’s Edgar Thomson plant in Braddock, Pa. That facility makes slabs and rails them to the company’s Irvin Plant in West Mifflin, Pa., where they are rolled into sheet.

SMU’s cold-rolled coil price stands at $1,290 per ton ($64.50 per cwt). That’s up $40 per ton (3.2%) from last week and up $425 per ton (49%) from a 2023 low of $865 per ton. The low was recorded in late September, according to SMU’s pricing tool.
