ArcelorMittal to Sell 1,100 Acres in Weirton


ArcelorMittal plans to sell 1,000 acres of surplus property in Weirton to The Frontier Group of Companies.

Media outlets report that ArcelorMittal announced this week that it has entered a purchase agreement with Frontier for the property adjacent to its steel plant. The sale is expected to close later this year. Details of the deal weren’t released.

Frontier says its plans for property include developing the Ohio Valley Industrial Park.

Frontier President David Franjoine says in a statement that the company believes the Weirton site has significant development and reuse opportunities.
