Freeport Ongoing Rod Supply

Jun 19 2020

On June 17, we announced the closure of our Norwich rod mill to gain efficiencies with our two other rod mill operations. Freeport-McMoRan remains committed to serving the North American wire and cable industry and will continue to honor our commitments by delivering high-quality rod and exceptional customer care to our valued customers through our long-standing operations in El Paso, Texas and Miami, Ariz.

Last month, we also announced the closure of our Bayway Specialty Copper Products operation in Elizabeth, N.J. in response to the continued economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We have begun phasing out production and liquidating inventory.
