Cleveland-Cliffs Inc

Cleveland is home to one of the most productive integrated steelmaking facilities in the world. Cleveland is capable of producing one ton of steel per slightly more than one worker hour. The industry average in the United States is 1.9 worker hours per ton, which is nearly double Cleveland’s productivity figure.

The facility is strategically located on the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio with good access to the Port of Cleveland and Great Lakes shipping, as well as excellent highway and railroad transport. The plant operates two blast furnaces which feed two steelmaking facilities. It consists of the former LTV and Republic Steel plants and has stood on this site since 1913 on the East Side (Corrigan McKinney Steel) and 1914 on the West Side (Otis Steel) of the river.
