THE FEASIBILITY OF RETAINING STEEL OPERATIONS IN THE BUFFALO AREA: AN ASSESSMENT OF BETHLEHEM AND REPUBLIC STEEL COMPANY OPERATIONS
The study is part of the economic adjustment strategy developed for government planners and private industry to create new jobs and stimulate economic growth in Buffalo and Erie County. It was concluded that only significant capital investment, to develop new finishing facilities, would assure the continuance of current production levels at Bethlehem's Lackawanna plant. Conversely, the preliminary assessment of Republic's Buffalo plant indicates a favorable long term outlook for maintaining current production levels.
