SPARROWS POINT, BALTIMORE--APRIL 9, 2003--This is the Bethlehem Steel Sparrows Point. This is for a story about the rise and fall of Bethlehem Steel Corp. The company will change hands some time in late April/early May as part of a $1.5 billion sale to International Steel Group Inc. The Sparrows Point plant currently turns out about 4 million tons of steel per year. It is the second largest plant behind Bethlehem's plant in Burns Harbor, Indiana. Its steel mills, including the Sparrows Point complex in Baltimore County, will continue to operate under the new owners, who are leading the charge in reinvigorating the domestic steel industry.
