AM/NS Calvert held a small ceremony Tuesday commemorating the recent groundbreaking for their new $775 million steelmaking facility in northern Mobile County. AM/NS Calvert announced the new $775 million steelmaking facility just in December and have already officially broken ground on the joint venture between ArcelorMittal and the Nippon Steel Corporation.
“Alabama and the steel industry go hand in hand, and I am proud to see continued growth through AM/NS Calvert’s $775 million expansion,” Gov. Kay Ivey said. “Shovels have officially hit the dirt, and I look forward to the advancements this project will bring. Alabama continues to prove to be the place for business and industry.”
Bill Sisson is the president and CEO of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce.
“When two of the leading steel companies – ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel – make a significant investment such as this, the world takes notice,” Sisson said. “This announcement shows a great confidence in the Mobile area, and for that we are grateful. The capital investment and construction, along with the hundreds of permanent and in-direct jobs will benefit area suppliers and local families for years to come.”
