ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India is latest company to reduce output in response to India's coronavirus lockdown

ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India (AMNS India) is the latest steelmaker in the country to confirm it is reducing production rates due to the Covid-19 coronavirus lockdown in the country.

“AMNS operations are running at very low capacity, with minimum staff inside its facilities," a company spokesperson told Fastmarkets on Thursday March 26 without revealing details on which units had been shut.

AMNS India is the second blast furnace-based steel mill, after JSW Steel, to confirm that it has reduced output rates due to labor shortages arising from the restrictions of people movements.
