Severstal agreed to sell its Allenport plant in the United States to North American Trading.
Olga Antonova, a spokeswoman for Severstal, said Tuesday by telephone that the steelmaker signed a letter of intent. North American Trading is owned by William Kingston, who plans to reopen the Pennsylvania plant with 75 workers to produce cold-rolled metal with stainless steel coating for export, the Pittsburgh Tribune reported Tuesday, citing Kingston. He will invest $400 million to upgrade the plant over five years, the newspaper said.
