Evraz To Close Pipe Unit At Pueblo Steel Mill, Cut 70 Jobs

Russian steelmaker Evraz is shutting down the seamless pipe unit at its Colorado steel mill, cutting about 70 jobs.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports that the company announced this week that it was indefinitely suspending pipe production at its Pueblo plant because of sluggish U.S. oil and gas drilling and an ongoing influx of steel imports to the U.S. from foreign producers.
