US Steel will indefinitely idle its tubular steel mills in Texas and Ohio as a result of challenging market conditions and high import levels. The company has issued Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notices to employees of the Lone Star Texas mill and Lorain Ohio mill advising that layoffs related to the idle could take effect in as little as 60 days. Spokeswoman Meghan Cox said “Any remaining orders for the idled facilities may result in some shift to one of US Steel's other tubular facilities. The adjustment of operations has the potential to impact approximately 600 employees at Lone Star Tubular Operations. At Lorain Tubular Operations, the potential impact is around 250 employees. While we do not expect to lay off that number of employees, the total number of employees impacted will depend on operational and maintenance needs."

US Steel's Lone Star Tubular Operations facilities in Lone Star specializes in the manufacturing of electric-resistance welded tubular products and the Lorain manufacturing facility produces high-quality seamless pipes
