The plant opened in December 1944 but operated for only two years as a U.S. government facility. During that time its primary products were plate steel and structural shapes for the West Coast wartime shipbuilding industry. With the end of the war in August 1945, production at the plant was greatly reduced. The government began soliciting buy-out offers from steel manufacturers, and in June 1946 accepted a $47.5 million bid from U.S. Steel, with the stipulation that the company invest another $18.6 million in converting the plant to peacetime operations. The actual value of the state-of-the-art plant was estimated at more than $144 million.
