|Abstract:||<p> The major emphasis of this paper concerns the location of Stelco 1 s Lake Erie Works at Nanticoke. The paper puts into perspective Stelco's decision to build a new integrated steel works. Stelco had to increase its capacity by an estimated six-million tons to ensure its competitiveness up to the year 2000. Hilton Works could at best only produce a five and a half to six million ton annual capacity and had no room available to expand its operation. </p> <p> Stelco therefore set out on an intense search to find a suitable location to develop a new integrated steel plant. Nanticoke Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Erie, was finally chosen as the site. Overall, the differences between Hamilton and Nanticoke are small and it was chiefly the space available and better labour relations at Nanticoke that influenced Stelco's choice of location. Construction of Lake Erie Works began in 1974 and the first phase was completed in 1980. </p>|
