West Mich. steel company plans to reopen foundry

A West Michigan steelmaker said it bought a former foundry and plans to start producing castings there next year. The Associated Press reported on Monday that Muskegon-based Michigan Steel Inc. bought the former Kurdziel Industries foundry in the Oceana County village of Rothbury in June and plans to rename it Rothbury Steel. Michigan Steel President Chris Moein said the facility could employ between 150 and 200 people. Moein said the company plans to start producing steel castings in the renovated plant by the first quarter of next year.
