Graycor International

Project Scope

Longtime Graycor client ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest global steel company, called on Graycor International of Canada to dismantle a blast furnace baghouse at their plant in Weirton, West Virginia, and then transport and reinstall the baghouse at their plant in Hamilton, Ontario. The project was a joint effort between Graycor International, Graycor Industrial and J.S. Alberici’s Hamilton’s Ontario, office.

The project required a great deal of planning and coordination between all the partners to dismantle and ship the baghouse internationally, and reassemble it at the Canadian plant without disrupting production at either plant.

For decades, ArcelorMittal and its predecessors (Inland Steel, Ispat Inland, LTV Steel and Bethlehem Steel) have relied on Graycor for construction services throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.
