Hello Sir. I have a question about words.

If I want to say it is a factory where people made steel or some kinds of material. What word I can use in this situation? I've already had two words in my mind.

-Steel-manufacturing plant.

-Steel-manufactured plant.

Could you tell me which is correct, please. Can you suggest other word with the same meaning.

Hello, Moon Le—IKhan is correct that "steel-manufacturing plant" is correct. A steel-manufacturing plant is a plant that manufactures steel.

"Steel-manufactured plant" is incorrect. That would refer to a plant that is itself manufactured with (or of) steel. That is surely not the meaning you want.

Yes: "steel mill."
