JSW Steel Announces New $500 Million Investment in Ohio…

JSW Steel has announced an agreement to purchase Acero Junction facility in Mingo Junction, Ohio. Thanks specifically to the Trump administration economic plan, it is investing upwards of $500 million in the old Ohio steel plant that was built in 1929, instead of constructing a new facility in India.
The project is expected to generate an estimated 300 permanent jobs in a town of just 3,400 people.  “We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community,” CEO John Hritz said:

          American Steel? How about getting an American fastener manufacturer? Damn tired of using screws, bolts, etc made from steel slag scraped off some Chinese floor. Full of sand and fillers.
          Dangerous to the National Security to have basic necessities made outside of this country- especially by a belligerent like China.
          American made – Sell QUALITY. Things that last, that don’t break when you are doing a job, would sell like hotcakes.

        Schooling someone implies they’re capable of learning. The democrats are incapable of learning. Their only interested in power in order to strip us of our liberties. I’m not interested in schooling them. I’m interested only in crushing them into extinction.

        • GB Bari says:

          Yes. They’re adults. To continue to hold onto naive, stupid, and ill-thought out policies is their problem, not mine. There’s been too many attempts to appeal to their intelligence that they have swatted away and come back at us with even worse lies and threats of totalitarian actions. Screw them.

    • WSB says:

      That was AWESOME! And Wilburine does not take well to being interrupted. God has blessed us with Wilbur Ross!!!!!!

      • Curry Worsham says:

        Wilbur the Killer

      • When Candidates Trump talked abt getting killer negotiators, he was not kidding. It’s amazing to me how fast President Trump and his cabinet are turning our country around!

      • JC says:

        The sheer dignity of Wilbur Ross, combined with his incredible knowledge base, not only makes him a formidable force FOR Americans, it displays the marked contrast of Congress members’ general stupidity, anti-American bias and childish behavior.
        Thank you, Secretary Ross, for graciously giving of yourself for President Trump and the American people.

        • JC says:

          (Comment in response to WSB’s fine post.)

        • Questioning says:

          Would have ben nice had Wilbur actually answered the question. The reality is that worldwide Chinese dumping has put US steel and aluminum manufacturers out of business to such an extent that the number of operating factories has dropped below those needed to support an American defense. Given a level playing field, the USA can produce steel and aluminum at a lower cast than anyone else.

    • Cooper45 says:

      It’s disgusting the way the media and the merciless Dems treat Wilbur.
      The USA is blessed to have a brilliant businessman like him volunteer to serve his country in the gov’ts Commerce Dept. rather than spend more time with his family and continue to amass more personal wealth with his former businesses.
      But business “reporters” continue to accuse him of unfounded ethics violations and even FNC’s Steve Hilton (Next Revolution) accuses him of being a typical swamp creature. Wilbur’s explanations of the so called ethics violations in your CNBC clip seem very plausible to me but Hilton and others continue to accuse 80 year old frail Wilbur of being obsessed with making money for himself.

      • JonS says:

        Frail? Sharp as a tack!

        • Cooper45 says:

          Jon:
          He’s definitely as sharp as a tack mentally but most 80 year old’s back’s are not the same as at twenty. It’s perfectly normal for 80 year old’s to walk slower and hunched especially after sitting for hours like he did after the hearing was over.
          The incredible work he’s doing is even more incredible and impressive at 80 and that was why I mentioned it. He’s an exceptional man and it enrages me to see how he’s treated by Dem dopes and operatives despite his unrelenting efforts.

        • Carrie2 says:

          JonS, and I believe he is not yet 80 as I believe I am older than he. Smart as a whip and knowledgeable about anything to do with business and money. Our President knows how to attract great people to him for MAGA.

      • missilemom says:

        Mr. Ross doesn’t give a sh*t about their criticisms. He is quite secure in his knowledge and when he speaks; people listen.

        • Cooper45 says:

          missilemom:
          “Mr. Ross doesn’t give a sh*t about their criticisms.”
          I respectfully disagree. Wilbur is exceptional but he’s also human. The lies and the accusations must at least annoy him occasionally but he’s strong enough and confident enough not to let them distract him from his goals.

          • missilemom says:

            You may be right; however I saw his interview where they challenged his blind trust and he seemed to enjoy giving them the facts and the time of day.

          • kiskiminetas says:

            You don;t get to where he has been and is now with letting people get to you, on the contrary he gets to other people

            • Carrie2 says:

              kiskiminetas, which is the same with our President – they have both with A’s in business, common sense, and hard working. Age is a relative thing but thank God many of elderly are altogether mentally and physically. I actually teach oldsters how to strengthen their bones and muscles without going to a gym and paying big money and hurting themselves.

      • oldschool64 says:

        That clown Hilton has also called for the firing of Scott Pruitt. He’s part of the Revolution alright, just not ours.

      • What? He’s 80?!?
        Now I’m even more impressed than ever!

      • Dennis Leonard says:

        Do you always talk in circles,because you are giving me a headache.

    • Paul B. says:

      Amazing to see the Dem senator posturing. Isn’t it obvious to everyone by now that they don’t know what they’re talking about? They’ve got to be catching on. If this continues, not only will the Dems wash out in November, but the corrupt media that gives them cover will go down with them, as the American population in Reaganesque numbers declares their independence.

    • Cooper45 says:

      Wilbur’s exchange with Claire McCaskil was also impressive and he stopped her in his tracks.

    • Kenji says:

      Beautifully explained. And my burning question is … WHY has no previous President taken any action whatsoever against China’s deceptive practices? Damn it feels good to have a gangstah President!
      Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
      Gettin’ voted into the White House
      Everything lookin’ good to the people of the world

      • G. Alistar says:

        I’ll answer the question, with a question– “What are you for?” When you understand what you are for, it drives what you do. The previous several POTUS were for power, keeping political control, cronies payoffs, making lots of money. The previous one POTUS was for a far left, progressive agenda and gave lip service to being an American. His wife, ashamed to be a citizen. Both were and still are for racial divide and hatred, BLM, hate for Israel, global warming, etc.ad.nausem. Our POTUS today is for: the nation and our people — Jobs, free trade, strong military, pro Israel, secure borders, constitutional SCOTUS judges and in a word; MAGA.

        • notyetbeguntofight says:

          “When you understand what you are for, it drives what you do.”

    • Carrie2 says:

      SD,I truly like Ross and it was laughable when he said “let me finish” and got a sweet response back like a child to a father. He commands respect every time while the other party or parties start interrupting or naysaying. Will they ever learn? Hmm.

    • treehouseron says:

      This video perfectly illustrates one of my biggest pet peeves. This idiotic senator who doesn’t know anything somebody didn’t hand him on a sheet of paper and tell him to say on t.v., is asking Wilburine Ross, a gentleman who’s studied the Steel markets for 50 years, to explain the convoluted, complicated ins and outs of the global steel market in a 15 second sound byte.
      It would take weeks of conversations with Mr. Ross to even begin to understand the complexity of what he’s discussing here.

  1. Maquis says:

    YES!

    • frankie says:

      Thank you, President Trump. I drive thru Mingo Junction a couple of times a year. They are poor and proud, and this will help them immensely.

      • WSB says:

        Great things will happen!
        What do you know about Wheeling?

        • Chromie says:

          I lived in the Valley, grew up there. in the 60s and early 70s is was blue collar proud and a great area. Wheeling was still vibrant. I moved away before the rust belt crash (imported steel; EPA war on coal).

  2. Becky Pacey says:

    Fantastic! Love all this winning!

  3. Chris Four says:

    JSW Steel is one of India’s leading integrated steel manufacturers with a capacity of 18 MTPA. Wikipedia
    Great way to avoid tariffs.

    • Bo3484 says:

      Your comment Chris is brilliant because it reveals the exponential power of the tariffs and our new business tax policy.
      Companies not only from the United States, but from all over the world are going to open operations in our country. They benefit by avoiding the tariffs when they sell their products to US customers and enjoy the reduced business income taxes.
      And who will all these companies be hiring at great wages?
      American workers.
      Winning to the n’th degree!
      Mr. Ross’s policy will be a study in economic genious for years to come.

  4. Paul B. says:

    Fantastic. I’m happy for them. This is the way the country is supposed to be run.

    • Paul B. says:

      Many years ago I toured the Carpenter Specialty Steel mill in Bridgeport, CT. It was an unforgettable experience. The electric arc in the huge vats, that were so bright you couldn’t look at them, the sight of the glowing multi-ton ingots, the worker in the pits grinding off the slag, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off, the work was so hard, the immense power lines coming into the plant, driving the whole thing. I was shocked to learn just a few years later that the plant had been closed because of the economics and politics of international trade. Bridgeport went even further downhill from there.
      Now it’s being reversed. Thank God.

      • RedBallExpress says:

        True story: 40 years ago a group of black steel workers rode to work in a Rock Island steel mill in a very clean older Cadillac. They worked their tails off but they were very proud of the work they did and every one of them wore a suit and tie to work.

      • ATheoK says:

        “the worker in the pits grinding off the slag, 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off, the work was so hard”

        That 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off is because of the heat, not how hard the work is.
        High temperatures quickly sap a person’s strength, making them unsafe to themselves and to everyone around them. The ingots and ingot molds radiate heat for days.
        Which is not to diminish how hard the work is with the jackhammers and grinders; just that the time limits are caused by heat stress.
        I worked at US Steel and got to work in almost every part of the plant; only excepting the pipe mill and the iron works. We may have smelled like sulfur dioxide for days, but nothing like the reeks an iron works employees trailed around.
        USS was constructing a building for the new electric arc furnace when that plant got closed.
        At first the big steel companies were trying to ignore the new furnaces the Japanese and Germans were building/using, until those countries virtually owned the high quality alloy markets. Then the Americans were trying to play catch up.

        • Phil says:

          I can confirm that. Currently still working at a steel mill over 30 years now. Earlier I ran the ladle crane, the one that carries the molten steel (100 tons). One 90 degree day the air conditioner quit and yes you can’t just stop! DId your job and got to the landing to go down 2 flights of stairs when you could. Sweat is just pouring off of you. The afternoon shift an older fella 50s came in and shut it down. Air conditioner guys worked on it in 15 minute shifts. The thermometers they carried showed 180 degrees in the cab and over 200 above it. Extremely hard conditions but the camaraderie was real. I have a small taste of what military men must experience with their buddies!

          • jengancworld says:

            Don’t they give you guys and ladies salt tablets if you working down there because you sweat so much you lose all the potassium from your body and you cramp up that’s what I’ve been told. Also when they went to the bar the local bar by the plant they would all pour salt in their beer to replenish the what was lost in their bodies!

            • Phil says:

              This was in the 80s and early 90s when starting up a brand new mill. Yes they tried all sorts of things to help. Oh, the stories that I can tell, but I hate typing!! But everyone had a can do attitude to make it work. It is really a revolution in how automated a new mill is in today’s world.

            • vexedmi says:

              Bethlehem Steel had salt dispensers mounted on columns for their workers throughout the plant.

    Great news. I am familiar with Mingo Junction. It has been depressed for 40 years.

  6. fleporeblog says:

    This is winning folks! This is what our President and his Killers are talking about. The 232 tariff on steel and aluminum allowed this incredible investment in Ohio. That same 232 when placed on cars, trucks and parts will bring auto manufacturing back to our country BIGLY.
    Our President is foreshadowing the future in this tweet he posted an hour ago!

      From the article linked above
      In March, JSW Steel announced plans to invest $500 million in its existing plant in Baytown, Texas.
      Hritz told FOX Business’ Liz Claman Opens a New Window. that the company currently has 500 people on site and is expected to hire 500 new employees in high-tech jobs.
      “We need a lot of great craftsmen,” he said in March. “We need every facet of people that you can imagine.”

        Nucor Corp. (NYSE: NUE) plans to build a galvanized steel sheet metal production line at its Nucor Steel Arkansas plant at a cost of $240 million.
        It is the second major expansion announced by Nucor in the last two years. In September 2016, the Charlotte steelmaker said it would build a $230 million cold mill addition at the plant. That is due to be completed this year.
        The company says the two projects are important parts of the company’s plans to expand its share of the automotive steel market.
        “This new galvanizing line, coupled with our new specialty cold mill complex, will allow us to efficiently produce products beyond the capability of any North American mill, and to have the flexibility to meet current and future demand for advanced high-strength steel products.” says CEO John Ferriola.

    If anybody needed any more reason for the ramping up of the ‘Nazi’ rhetoric/deliberate building up of the frenzy of hate. look no further than this announcement. Everything Trump touches is turning to gold with the average American. In every field – trade, economics, foreign policy, immigration – President Trump is enacting policies which not only resonate with Americans but are the right policies. Add to that the gradual destruction of the ‘insurance policy’ as Obama’s DS operatives are exposed to the sunlight and the Left has nothing in its locker.
    It can’t compete on the policy front. It is losing hearts and minds every day so all it has left is to unleash Obama’s foot soldiers to try to scream the average man and woman into submission.
    I’m not an American so I can’t claim to feel the pulse of the nation, but I can smell the desperation of the left from Tasmania.

      Tasman, I am up in Canada, just over the border. My one neighbour and I, talk daily about the latest events in the PDJT hemisphere.
      A way one may look at it, is that on this site alone. There are comments posted by Kiwis, Aussies, Canucks, English, and Scots. I have seen posters from Italy and Germany too.
      These commentators are by and large hugely supportive of PDJT. My guess is few of us gave much of a rats arse about U.S. politics before, and were likely independents. Not R or D.
      This indicates to me that PDJT will win re-election easily, and come November decent Republicans will be in the majority again in the Congress.
      The movement is massive, and growing. Without the MSM and the billionaire marxists promoting funding the resistance.
      PDJT would be in the mid sixties in their fake polls, and the Dems would be a spent force.
      God bless PDJT

        An old college friend of mine, a lifelong (Southern) Democrat and old hippie, has been listening to Dr. Jordan Peterson. “He makes me think,” Bill said. He has become engrossed with Peterson’s talks on Youtube, and NOW he says that the immigration thing is something he really agrees with President Trump on.
        There are many many tributaries running through the delta to the sea. Peterson is one way through. Seeing bonuses is another. Tariffs bringing back factories is another. Talk Radio is another. We are a mighty army: each one of us has a weapon, be it a one-shot fowling piece or a mighty howitzer: the combination of all our “firepower” is not to be ignored.

        Hey there Dekester. For what its worth Canada is always high on the list of must-see destinations. ‘A beautiful country, run by complete spanners’ seems to be the general view of friends of mine who have visited.

        • Dekester says:

          Jase,
          Canada has been blessed with a stunning array of natural beauty. I have lived here for nearly forty years, and it has been very kind to me.
          The “ spanners” that run the place are much like the “ spanners” in nearly every other “ democracy” Utterly useless!
          Hence one of the reasons PDJT has such a massive appeal to such a broad spectrum, and this phenomenon has his political adversaries and the media dumbfounded.
          Stay safe.

      • Carrie2 says:

        Dekester, allow me to say hello to and thank all outside America posters here showing that many in this world are appreciative of us and our President and maybe just maybe they will be able to upright their countries as well. I do know that once again the Chinese people see America as the “strong country” no matter the economics or politics. They have more freedom now, love having quality clothes, cars, etc. Xi has a hard job now trying to reconcile all today’s China vs. the previous controls. God answered our prayers so I pray for these countries that they too be blessed with freedom and rights as well. Dictators/socialists/communists eventually fail and it has happened time and again over millennia but we must all make sure this does not revert back and keep ourselves informed and ready to do whatever has to be done to keep our Republic.

      Good on you America! I read sundance every day. What President Trump is doing in America and the world takes my breath away. It is better than going to the movies. Our media Downunder repeats the FAKE news, especially “our” taxpayers’ abomination called the ABC. We need a Trump type leader. Our energy policy encompasses the spiritual renewables, wind and sun, but it takes the backup of coal fired power stations to keep the nation running. Our Prime Minister believes in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming – that’s why we are paying extortionate energy prices.
      Australia is a big beautiful island – it has everything. Sadly, our politicians are failing it.

My neighbors were all swamp dwellers, liberals, activists and some, no doubt, hated America. In my upscale community, we had NBA players. On my cul de sac, we had some near famous (including my neighbor – a big shot with CNN if you can believe it). No one (but me) cut their own grass or tended their property (they had their illegals for that!!).
    But this story reminds me why I am here and not with them (or her, for that matter). You see I grew up in a town just like the one mentioned here. I could walk to a Wheeling Pittsburgh steel rolling mill. Towns like Monessen and Donora with major steel works were just up the river. Life was good once…. Good jobs were plentiful and strong communities resulted.
    Then globalization hit…. I escaped to gain an engineering degree and a chance to prosper. Those left behind gained only misery and unemployment. The huge and gloriously ugly steel mill In Monessen is completely gone – stripped to the ground. The rolling mill hasn’t operated in years and is half torn asunder.
    These people – OUR people – asked for nothing but to have decent jobs and work hard for America. They hunted in the fall, went boating in the summers, went to church on Sundays, raised their kids to love this country and we gave them globalization and MISERY.
    Now its a wasteland. Alcoholism and drug addiction are rampant.
    Yet Time magazine lies to us about immigration but doesn’t shed one tear for AMERICANS living a shell of a life in the Monogahela valley…. As Peter Strzok would say – I can smell them.
    I have iived amongst the swamp people for years. They care more about some faceless immigrant than their fellow Americans… I would shed a tear – but then I read a story like this and it makes me hope for a new beginning…. God bless America…

      “Now its a wasteland. Alcoholism and drug addiction are rampant.”
      Yes, indeed. The needs in Ohio are great. Work took me to the Canton area. Newspapers full of sad OD tales. Hollowed out by drugs there.
      This is good news for the screwed over work force of Ohio. Here’s to many more successes in the next 8 years.

      • jeans2nd says:

        Bill, do not believe everything you read in the Canton Suppository, Y-town Vindictiveness, or Cleve Pravda Press.
        Have lived here nearly all my life – still here, btw. Those papers are nothing but liberal lies.
        Yes, drugs are bad. We’ve all lost someone near and dear, including yours truly.
        But, we’ve love, our Lord and Savior, and each other. And now Pres Trump.
        There are many more mills opening than just the few about which you hear. There is work again.
        Life is good.

      These are the people that made America the greatest, most prosperous AND most generous, welcoming country in the history of the world. THIS is the America that my in-laws came to in 1958 to give their children a better life. They came here to work HARD and they did – they never asked for anything except the chance to be part of the great American dream.
      And these are the people that re-elected Ronald Reagan in a landslide and THESE are the people who will do the same for Donald Trump in 2020.

      Radar? 🙂

    • sunnydaze says:

      Thanks for a beautiful post, Radar Guy.

    • My understanding is that part of the situation is the local taxing ‘authorities’.
      They tax a facility (for instance, a steel mill or other type of factory) the same whether it is running or not. So, if a factory shuts down because of economic conditions, the tax men keep taxing it. The company that owns the facility then finds that they cannot pay the taxes, so they pay money to a demolition crew to tear it down, so as to pay tax only on the vacant land.
      The trouble is, if conditions change to where the mill could be refurbished and restarted to make money again, there is no mill to refurbish and restart.
      It is GONE.
      Anyone with better knowledge of this than what modest knowledge that I have, please chip in!

    • litlbit2 says:

      I would hope going forward as the jobs come back the workers do not let themselves be overrun by union leaders to suck the life out of their new corporation then sell out to overseas interests for the union limo, Learjet, bloated expense account funded by union dues and political donations to the dnc.
      Doing the same thing expecting different results. Fool me once shame…..fool me twice..?

        Hmmm… Labor Reform? Sounds like…MAGA!

        • litlbit2 says:

          I pray we do not go back to the old ways of dividing the worker from the business to fatten to pot of the promoter through propaganda for their agenda. Workers must think.

      • prenanny says:

        It will be up to the workers if they want a union or not, here is hoping they vote against a union and develop a good relationship with the company on their own.
        To be clear even though Ohio and other States are not right to work the employees can vote to NOT have a union.

      Kasich never even DREAMED of doing this stuff.
      Kasich toyed with friendliness toward Trump at the beginning of the primaries. Then he made some visit to the CFR and BOOM – anti-Trump cartoon character. He could have been Trump’s budget wrangler, but no – he WENT FULL GLOBO.
      Never go full globo.
      Instead of Kasich getting credit for helping Trump do this, now he gets zilch. Dissing Trump every day, for his CHEAP FIX OF MEDIA LOOZAMINS.
      Yup. Trump is just building up that Renacci endorsement day by day. Sherrod Brown – FORMER friend of the working man, who turned friend of the communist betrayers of the working man, will NOT be re-elected if this continues.

  28. JimWVa says:

    Thanks again, Sundance. Before NAFTA, the rolls of steel bands shown being moved by an overhead crane in the Fox Business video, were made in Mingo Junction, Ohio then trucked across the Ohio River to the West Virginia side where it was manufactured into steel pipe using the continuous weld furnace in a Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel plant that now sits empty under the now abandoned Bellaire Bridge.
    These jobs evidently went to India, according to the Fox Business report. If President Trump continues to effectively reorder the US trade imbalance, by 2020, this part of the Ohio Valley will see an economic renewal that most other politicians have told us is futile to hope for. (“These jobs aren’t coming back.”)
    Not tired of WINNING! MAGA!

    Sundance, thank you for all of the economic news; I watch Fox Business but you present it in a platform that allows me to understand and explain to others. Targeted news that brings it home.
    (Graduated first in my college in business and you school me every day)

    • Ken says:

      Similar to your story, missilemom, I have both undergraduate and graduate degrees from MIT, have 30 years of working in the Oil & Gas engineering and manufacturing industry, have lived in other countries and have climbed to the executive level…
      Yet, I come here every day now to learn from Sundance and read the amazing threads of postings from all you deplorable, “Peter Stzrok can smell them”, uneducated “hillbilly” people from all those flyover states.
      And for the first time in my life, I recently wrote my congressman to express my support for DJT (who I did not vote for, rather I voted Libertarian… please don’t shoot me!) and how I want my Rep to be louder in Congress in his support as well.
      Love you all.

    Well gee wiz, how did all those Ohio Retard Deplorables manage to keep a 100 year old steel mill still viable, and able to be put back to use again?
    Pride, baby. Ohio – and Westbygawd – pride. Do not forget there is a finger of Westbygawd that juts upriver to Mingo.
    The only prob might be passing a drug test. But, knowing these people all my life, they will be ready to go by application time.
    Now all they need do is negotiate Route 9, in the dark. Not for the faint-hearted. Or noobs. Nor driverless trucks lolol.
    The union guys are celebrating again tonight.

  37. rjcylon says:

    I’m sure most of you remember the condescending media on the night of the election, when they still thought Hillary was going to win. All these jobs were gone. Forever. And that Hillary should be gracious to the “little guy” who voted for Trump out of ignorance. Let’s retrain all these people and gently guide their backwards selves into the 21st century. Everyone is going to be a software engineer. Can’t rely on on those “old fashioned jobs” anymore. It’s a new economy blah blah blah.
    So glad America is back.

      John, and yes so many tell us he is a liar, a cheat, ripped off people, didn’t pay his bills, etc., etc. I just see them looking the mirror and all this garbage suits them to a T and never to Trump. Has to hurt to see yourself as you really are so you have to carp and complain and lie to face the day.

  39. Lurking Xenophobe Aged Rebel says:

    Yes, Pecosbill, Long ago, monolithic steel mills located on the shores of Lake Erie forged the engine of prosperity creating lives for first generation immigrants in the city of Cleveland. Surrounding neighborhoods were dotted with Colonial, Craftsman and Tudor style homes. Cozy vine covered porches provided front row seating for reporting scandal over iced tea during summer making the neighborhood a large family.
    In the decade of the 60’s blackberries still grew on trees. When the jobs were outsourced, and the Cuyahoga River could be lit with a match it was time to go. Our steel mills were shuttered when the jobs went to “other” countries. Ohio suffered greatly. Decades later the shells of dilapidated steel mills are mostly gone. Some of these ruins captured by historical photographs reveal disjointed empty assembly lines remnants of when cars were made in America. The baby boomers, children of the greatest generation remember what Ohio was. Our great president now gives those who can imagine, hope of what can be–once again.

    In other news, a paper mill is about to be built in Wisconsin. It’s been 30 years since a new mill was built here.

    The really cool thing to behold is that President Trump plays the political game with a tool no other politician has thought to use in a very long time: He makes a substantive promise that impacts peoples lives very personally and positively, AND THEN HE KEEPS IT!
    MAGA!

  42. treehouseron says:

    A couple weeks ago I bought a bunch of steel roofing for a building I’m restoring, and went to the factory to watch it be made. They loaded one of those big rolls of steel like you see in the video above on this big machine, and rolled it through the forms and stamped it (or bent it) into ribbed steel panels they cut 20 feet long.
    Whole thing was really cool.

  43. Jeff hansen says:

    It is a welcome change to have an administration whose trade officials are willing to execute a policy for the benefit of the American people based on facts and a strong set of priorities. With Obama’s folks it was little talk and no action.

    Every time I see an article like this, my eyes well up and my heart starts racing. We are so blessed to have Donald Trump as President and for Sundance for bringing us the news.

    The CoC and the Globalist Institutions won’t like this one little bit……..
    The people of Mingo Junction are supposed to be ecstatic to be unemployed or reduced to part time on call take away food jobs that leads to unstable families and community disintegration in the name of globalism.
    President Trump and JSW Steel are in the business of creating full time jobs and stable families.
    How the Democrat Alinsky left and their Globalist cronies hate that.
