- By Christin Nilsson

Russia´s largest steelmaker is seeking buyers for US steel mills that it acquired in 2008.

Russia´s largest steelmaker Severstal acquired plants in Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia for a total of $2.2 billion in 2008.

The steelmaker is now seeking for a single buyer for these plants, employing som 6,000 workers.

The plants are the Sparrows Point complex near Baltimore; the former Wheeling-Pitt operations based in Wheeling, W.Va.; and the former WCI Steel mill in Warren, Ohio. The plants are reported to lose lots of mony.

Severstal reported a $1 billion loss last year, but said it was well-positioned for recovery.

The bid, which would be backed by Los Angeles-based Aurora Capital Group, could be announced as early as this week, American Metals Market reported.
