(Lorain) -- Republic Steel will start its production in Lorain in the coming months. The company says more than 60 people have been hired and the facility is completely refurbished.
The building closed in 2016, laying off 200 workers. Republic Steel announced its intentions to re-open early last year. T
hey say the reason why they didn't start operating in December of 2018 is because steel tariffs didn't create the demand they expected for the product.
