Possible steel mill in Scioto County
(2007-09-18)
(WOUB) - PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (AP) - Governor Strickland met with officials
of a Russian steelmaking company yesterday to
discuss the possibility of the company locating a $1 billion steel
mill near Portsmouth.

The mill would create 1,000 jobs in Scioto County if it's built at the Ohio River site in Haverhill.

Strickland and Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher also met with
officials from the Russian company known as MMK at Shawnee State
University in Portsmouth. More meetings are scheduled for today.

Officials are hoping for a decision from the company by the end
of the year.
