Former JSW Steel USA CEO to join AM/NS Calvert

Written by Laura Miller

Steel industry veteran Mark Bush announced he will be joining AM/NS Calvert as area manager steelmaking.

Bush has been involved in the steel industry for more than 30 years. He’s held various positions with SSAB Americas, including general manager of the company’s operations in Mobile, Ala. In 2020, he joined JSW Steel USA in Baytown, Texas, as CEO. He stepped down from that role in 2022 to pursue other opportunities.

The first 1.65-million-short-ton-per-year electric-arc furnace (EAF) at AM/NS Calvert is expected to come online by the end of this year. A second EAF with the same capacity is still in the works.

AM/NS Calvert is a joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel. In 2014, the partners purchased the hot rolling, cold rolling, coating, and finishing mill located in Calvert, Ala., from ThyssenKrupp Steel for $1.5 billion.
