The Cleveland-Cliffs Coatesville plant began operating in 1810 as the Brandywine Ironworks and Nail Factory. It was also named the Lukens Steel Company for most of the 1900s. The plant was bought by Bethlehem Steel in 1998 for $400 million; however, after the company went bankrupt, it was bought by the International Steel Group (ISG) in 2003, which was bought by ArcelorMittal in 2004 and renamed to Coatesville (and Bethlehem Steel).[2][3] ArcelorMittal was bought by Cleveland-Cliffs in 2020 for $1.1 billion, at which point the Coatesville plant transferred owners again.[4]

In 2013, three workers were injured after a furnace exploded at the facility.[5]
