EVRAZ Preparing to Restart Colorado Tubular Mill

EVRAZ North America, a Metal-Expo exhibitor, plans to restart its seamless tube mill in Colorado later this month.

According to EVRAZ North America, employees at the Seamless Pipe Mill will be returning to work in the coming weeks. Operations at the Seamless Pipe Mill were shut down last year, and around 200 workers were laid off in April and May of 2020.

Union President Charles Perko tells KRDO some of the employees will be returning to work on Thursday to begin training. By Monday, 90 employees will be employed, and 40 additional workers in the coming weeks.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, economies across the world shut down and oil prices fell. That resulted in drilling slowing down throughout the country and the demand for Seamless Pipe products was hurt. EZRAZ North America was forced to lay off dozens of employees at the Seamless Pipe Mill.

Wednesday, EVRAZ confirmed they are in the process of reaching out to dozens of workers about returning to their positions.

In addition to reinstating those positions, EVRAZ is offering new positions as well. That includes steel makers, mill operators, HR coordinators, production supervisors, and more.

In April, EVRAZ will begin the process of restarting production at the Seamless Pipe Mill. 

According to an EVRAZ North America spokesperson, customers are already booking orders for products.
