Many people are expected to lose their jobs at the Commercial Metals Company steel mill in Rancho Cucamonga. A corporate spokeswoman confirms they are closing a large part of the mill. CMC spokeswoman Ms Susan Gerber said “The burdensome regulatory environment and cost of doing business in California has put the Rancho Cucamonga melt shop at a severe cost disadvantage in the highly competitive rebar market. Therefore, CMC has decided to shutter the melt shop and supply the rolling mill with billet from excess melt capacity throughout our system of lower cost mills.”

The melt shop is what will be closing. This is where old steel is melted into rebar for construction.
