SEVERAL changes will take place in U.S. Steel Corporation’s management as of July 1, including changes in the senior management of the company’s plant based in the eastern-Slovak town of Košice.

David J. Rintoul, who is currently vice-president of European operations and president of U.S. Steel Košice, will relocate to the US to fill the newly created Pittsburgh-based position of vice-president of innovation and continuous improvement, the company reported on its website.

George F. Babcoke will return to Slovakia to serve as senior vice-president of European operations and global safety, and president of U.S. Steel Košice. Babcoke, who has been with the company for 37 years, will continue to have executive responsibility for U.S. Steel Košice as well as global oversight of safety and industrial hygiene for the firm, the company wrote.

Babcoke returns to Košice after two years in the US. He previously headed the Košice plant in 2008-2011, the TASR newswire reported.

U.S. Steel Košice was set up after U.S. Steel Corporation took over the VSŽ steelworks in June 2000. U.S. Steel Košice mostly produces steel, flat-rolled steel products, spiral welded pipes and radiators. The factory employs approximately 11,000 workers.
