WARREN, Ohio - It appears that the sale of LTV Steel's coke plant in Warren is not going to happen.
The latest deal to bring in a new buyer and save 200 jobs has fallen through. Now, time has run out.
The coke plant will be put on cold idle, and it will likely be too expensive to ever fire up the furnaces again.
Saving the Warren coke plant was crucial to the future of LTV's mill on the east side of Cleveland because coke is needed to make steel.
