POSCO to Boost Production of Steel Plates

Friday, July 07, 2006
POSCO will increase production of ship steel plates by 30 percent from 3.6 million tons to 4.7 million tons over the next three years. The steelmaker said Wednesday it will invest in improving facilities of three ship steel production lines at its Pohang ironworks. Demand for ship steel is on the rise since the shipbuilding industry will need 6 million tons of steel this year, but steelmakers can only produce 4 million. A POSCO official said the company made the decision expecting the shipbuilding industry to remain brisk until 2015. Source: Forbes
