Evraz Pueblo plant began operating in 1881 under the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company. In 2007 the plant was acquired by Evraz.

In July 2021, Evraz announced it would be building a $500 million mill to replace the existing one. It will open in late 2022 or early 2023 and will be powered by the 1,800 solar farms that Evraz will also be building nearby.[2]

Worker Safety

In 2009, an inspection by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration led to a $50,000 fine (applied in 2011) for continued exposures to amputation hazards.[3]

One worker was killed at the plant in April 2012 after being hit by a truck.[3]

In 2016, Evraz Pueblo was fined around $103,000 by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration after it was cited for a number of workplace safety issues.[3]

In May 2021, 8 people were injured in an explosion at Evraz Pueblo after an explosion at the furnace.[4]
