WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren steel plant is set to temporarily shut down due to difficult marketing conditions, according to a press release.
Warren Steel Holdings confirmed the plan to WKBN Thursday, sending a statement that read:
Given the current challenging market conditions, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily shut down steelmaking operations at Warren Steel Holdings.
