McLouth Steel

The first steel plant in North America to make steel via the basic oxygen process, McLouth Steel opened its Trenton, Michigan complex in 1954.  One of the most modern mills in United States for decades, fuel prices and inflation began a downturn for the plant that ended in a 1996 bankruptcy.  Despite being scrapped for metal, about half of the Trenton complex remains.
