The Charter Steel Cleveland plant, originally known as the Cuyahoga Works, was built in 1907 by the American Steel & Wire Company (which was owned by U.S. Steel). The American Steel & Wire Company sold the plant for around $52 million in 1993 to Birmingham Steel, who kept it running until 2001, when it was shut down. Charter Steel then bought the site in 2002 and invested around $125 million into expanding it, beginning construction in 2004. The plant then began operating as an electric steel plant in 2006.[2]

In 2017, Charter Steel announced it was planning to build a new $150 million mill adjacent to its Cleveland plant, which would be operational by mid-2018, but as of 2021, no further updates on this project have been published.[3][4]
