Plans for 2014

In 2014 and beyond we expect the North American steel market to demonstrate modest growth.

According to analyst estimates, US consumption of finished steel is expected to grow in the coming years to reach 110 million tonnes by 2018, a 10 per cent growth from the 2014 level.

This year we will be focusing on improving the quality of products at Dearborn, as well as further scrap mix optimisation and copper scheduling at Columbus, continued optimisation of logistics and revisiting our sales and marketing strategy at both assets.

Since our investment programme of recent years is complete, our target CAPEX in 2014 will be low, at around US$85 million with maintenance being around US$73 million of the total CAPEX amount.
