Steel industry gets boost

YORKVILLE — Big changes in ownership and in name are in store for the steel mills in the Village of Yorkville beginning today, thanks to a combination of resources involving two corporations.

The former RG Steel Yorkville LLC, will now be majority owned and operated by Esmark Steel Group, of Esmark Inc.

Ohio Coatings Company, located just south of the older of the two mills, will now become a 50-50 joint venture between Esmark Inc. and the South Korean steel company now known as TCC Steel.

Additional information will be shared at a celebration hosted by Esmark at its newly acquired Ohio Cold Rolling Company location in Yorkville.
