Made in Pennsylvania

At U. S. Steel, we believe our business thrives when we are actively engaged and involved in the communities where we make steel.

U. S. Steel has been making steel in the Mon Valley since its inception in 1901, when Andrew Carnegie sold the Carnegie Steel Company. The Mon Valley Works employs more than 3,000 hardworking indiviuals, many of whom live in Mon Valley communities.

At U. S. Steel, we firmly believe that we are only as strong as the communities that we live and work in, and we deeply value the greater Pittsburgh community in which the Mon Valley Works operates.

U. S. Steel
has a particularly strong bond and history with the state of Pennsylvania, but that doesn’t stop us from forging new partnerships that demonstrate our deep commitment to the region. We continue to invest in the Commonwealth’s prosperity and diversity and set the stage for technological advancements that will shape the future of greenhouse gas reduction for the steel industry statewide. Discover the many positive contributions U. S. Steel is making in the region in the Pennsylvania Economic Impact Study.



As part of our ongoing commitment to the local community, we are dedicated to supporting the education of our region’s children. For the past two years, U. S. Steel has hosted an annual Reading Champions Program in partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. The goal of the program is to foster a love of reading among local elementary school students. 

This program challenges student participants to read at least 20 minutes per day over an eight week period. This year, a total of 18 local schools participated in the program, with approximately 300,000 minutes of reading occurring across the various classrooms involved. 

In addition to sponsoring the program, U. S. Steel employees showed their support for this initiative in a variety of ways, such as signing books that are donated to the students, and making the winner’s cup and medals out of USS-made steel. U. S. Steel also hosted a pizza party for the classroom that read the most minutes during the challenge.
