ARMCO PLANT III
ASHLAND IS TO BE
GRMTLYENLARGED
Six Millions Will be Spent
on Big Finishing Mill v
Addition. , : '
Directors of the American Rolling
Mill Company have-completed a plan
of refinancing for the company, the
purpose of which is to provide for the .
development of the new properties
acquired at Ashland, Ky.-'
The program provides for new cap
ital in the amount of $14,000,000 to be
used as follows: $6,000,000 for the re
funding of aH the indebtedness of the
old Ashland Iron ft Mining Company,
assumed when the Ashland proper
ties were acquired; $6,000,000 for the
cost of new construction at the Ash
land plant and $2,000,000 for new
working capital at the Asnland plant
The expansion project for the Ash
land plant calls for new finishing
mills to cost $6,000,000. This will give
a completely balanced unit at Ashland
covering all processes from the raw
material to the finished article, with
a capacity of 20,000 tons of finished '
product per month. . The company has
a present finished capacity at' Middle
town and Zanenvilln of Zi!,000 tons, M ".
that the addition at Ashland will give
the COmnanv a tnt a) mnnlhlv mnti.ll.
of 40,000 to 42,000 tonB, or something
over auu.uuu ton3 ot untsned products
a year. . - '
This capacity will .enable the com
pany to successfully meet all the de
mands upon it for its products, and
by the proportionate reduction ln'or
erhpad eviunua ihrmial. iKo coi
gamation of the new plant with the
old, together with cheap fuel and
Dower nhtainahln nt iohl anti ' will
serve to reduce the cost per ton pf
iinisneu proauct, wnich should have
Ihe effect of making its average earn-,
ings proportionately larger than ever
iieiort. . .. v . ; ; ,.
Covers Vast Properties. 1
The Ashland properties comprise"
22,000 acres of coal and. timber lands,
a six-mill sheet plant, two blast fur
naces, six open-hearth furnaces and
a blooming mill and approximately 569
acres of manufacturing and city prop
erty at Ashland, together with the
Asblund CoaL& Iron Railway, com
prising some 43' miles of traNLSge,.
approximately one . nail of whldli Is
a l. iiiiiiiui roaa serving a large prt
ixirtion of the lnrhiklrlns nf lha Hi- nt
Ashland. -- -1
The Chesapeake ft Ohio Railroad,
operates 22 miles of the. road as part
or its main line to Lexington and

The company acquired the Ashiand.
properties through the payment of
$l,ouo,000 of the common stock ot the t
American .Rolling Mill Company and
the assumption of an indebtedness of
approximately $6,000,000.- The. prop
erty acquired has been conservatively
valued at $13,000,000.
Tho new financing will refund this
debt, provide for the construction of
the finishing mills and provide, the
needed additional working capital, v
When the Awhland unit is complet
ed the American Rolling Mill ' Com
pany will be the second largest man
ufacturer ot sheets and light plate
exclusively in the United States.
