Located near the Indiana border just south of Chicago, Illinois, Riverdale is a compact strip mill and produces hot-rolled coil products.
The location allows for close shipping access to Lake Michigan, and it is surrounded by excellent highway systems and railroads. The plant operates two basic oxygen furnaces, a ladle metallurgy facility, continuous thin slab caster and hot strip mill. The facility primarily serves cold-rolled strip producers who supply the automotive, saw blade and strapping markets. The light gauge capabilities and tight gauge tolerances are desired characteristics for line pipe and structural and mechanical tubing producers. Principal products made at this plant include hot-rolled black bands in a full range of grades, including high carbon and alloy.
