Crain's: ASI Limited resumes making steel panels for arena facade, but contractor's still looking for backup

So, now that ASI Limited, which shut down at the end of December, has resumed production of the weathered steel panels for the façade of the Barclays Center, according to Crain's New York Business, everything's fine?

Yes, but... Crain's reports:
Indiana-based ASI Limited reopened after the arena's contractor, Hunt Construction Group, worked with insurer Ohio Farmers to get the plant working again.

“We are very pleased with how Hunt responded to this situation,” said the Forest City spokesman. “Thanks to their aggressive actions, work has resumed, and we're all the more confident that we will meet our milestones for the arena.”

He added that [contractor] Hunt [Construction] is looking for additional companies to make the steel for the 675,000-square-foot arena that will be home to the Brooklyn Nets.
That suggests there's some lingering doubt.
