Geneva Steel shipped its millionth ton of steel this week, only 101/2 months after the company made its first shipment on Oct. 3, 1987.

Geneva President Joseph Cannon said this week's shipment is a real milestone for the plant.The shipment was sent to the West Coast on a 52-car train full of steel coils. Geneva Steel is a steel manufacturer, processing raw materials into finished products.

The plant was purchased last September by Basic Manufacturing and Technologies of Utah, under the helm of Joseph and Chris Cannon.
