ThyssenKrupp extends Christmas shutdown

ThyssenKrupp, one of the world's leading producers of stainless steel, will extend the Christmas holiday break at its largest stainless cold-rolled unit, Germany's Nirosta, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

"Normally we have anywhere between 10 days to two weeks break, but this year it will be four weeks," he said.

The decision affects its German sites in Dusseldorf and Bochum as well as its main Krefeld steel mill.

Another extended shutdown, due to the collapse in demand for steel.
