Liberty Steel USA considers capacity expansions

Liberty Steel USA, a subsidiary of GFG Alliance, is considering expanding crude steel capacity at its newly acquired Keystone Consolidated Industries (KCI) wire rod mill in Peoria, Illinois, by 300,000 tons per year.

Crude steel capacity at that mill totals 800,000 tpy, but Liberty Steel is “already examining” permit proposals that could raise that to 1.1 million tpy, the company said on Tuesday January 15.
