On Wednesday, Fontana, California-based steelmaker California Steel Industries (CSI) announced that Harold Allin has been elected as Executive Vice President, Operations. He succeeds Toshiyuki "Ted" Tamai, who was named President and CEO of CSI on Monday. Allin will assume responsibility for all operations at CSI's Fontana, California facility, including the hot rolling, finishing and pipe mills, and the maintenance, quality, production planning, purchasing, engineering, shipping and traffic functions.

As SteelOrbis previously reported, as of August 1, Tamai replaces Vicente Wright as President and CEO. CSI is owned equally by Brazil's Vale and Japanese steelmaker JFE Steel Corporation and the leadership of the company changes regularly as one shareholder company appoints the CEO and the other the Chairman of the Board position, and then vice versa upon the next rotation.
