Stelco has unveiled a new CAD 30 million, state-of-the-art steel processing facility in a move that is being touted as one of the biggest investments at the steelmaker's Hamilton division in memory. The batch annealing facility replaces a similar operation on Hamilton's Bayfront that was mothballed more than a decade ago. The business plan is to use the giant operation to process more than 200,000 net tons of steel products per year to compete with more than 500,000 tons of similar steel that is coming into Canada from the US.

Stelco's Hamilton Works has a cold-mill facility that is capable of processing much more steel than it currently does. By expanding the range of products to sell, through further processing the cold-rolled steel in the batch annealing facility, the company hopes to more fully utilize the cold mill's capacity.
