    I never heard of this Steel Mill before?
    Where were they making steel and what size of production or revenue they were generation? Why. instead of giving True Standing of The Orient Group in Industry…its just mentioned as “a client of a bank”? I can get more news just by walking up to that Mill or at KSE than the half baked throw-up above.
