From 1 to 1000 for ThyssenKrupp Steel

CALVERT, AL (WSFA) - "In the last three years we've watched our Team grow from 1 person to just over 1,000 talented Team Members," said Andy Ritter, Vice President of Human Resources for ThyssenKrupp Steel USA. "This is important to us and also important to Alabama, and particularly Mobile, because over 1,000 additional well paying operational jobs have been added to the area with many more to follow in the coming months." 

"When we announced Alabama had won the competition for ThyssenKrupp, I said a project with such an enormous economic impact would be transformational for south Alabama," Governor Bob Riley explained. "It certainly is living up to everything we hoped it would be.  In just three years, it has gone from zero employees to more than 1,000, and many more are still to be hired.  This progress is great for Alabama and for ThyssenKrupp."

Through its partnership with Alabama Industrial Development Training (AIDT), the company has screened thousands of applications and held numerous job fairs in counties throughout south Alabama to reach its hiring goals.

Andy Ritter complimented the quality of the available workforce. "The hiring process can be challenging for any company, especially with a project as big and as complex as ours," said Ritter. "But we've been impressed with the work ethic, enthusiasm, and skill level of our applicants and are proud to be hiring so many during tough economic times that have reduced jobs in Alabama and the entire nation." 

In November 2007, ThyssenKrupp Steel USA broke ground on its state-of-the-art carbon steel processing facility in Calvert, Alabama. When fully operational, the greenfield facility will provide the NAFTA market with 4 million metric tons of high quality value-added carbon steel products for customers in the automotive, construction, pipe and tube, service center, and appliance industries.
