Steelmaker US Steel Košice will see its former president, George F. Babcoke, return to the post after a two-year gap. He will also serve as vice-president for US Steel’s European operations and security, the SITA newswire reported on June 11.

Babcoke will replace David J. Rintoul, who took the post in January 2011. Rintoul will move to Pittsburgh to fill the newly-established position of vice-president for innovation.

US Steel Košice was established when the US Steel Corporation took control of the former Východoslovenské Železiarne (VSŽ) steelworks in June 2000. It is now one of the biggest producers of flat rolled steel in Europe, which it supplies mostly to the automotive, engineering and electro-technical industries.

The steelworks currently employs about 10,600 people, SITA wrote.
