SUCCESS STORIES

CROSS-FUNCTIONAL APPROACH,
PROBLEM SOLVED.

A tier 1 automotive customer had a technical problem with a fender bracket that was slowing production. Our application engineer quickly assembled a multi-disciplined team of specialists at U. S. Steel to develop a solution. A more formable steel material solved the problem and improved more than volume—it improved the relationship, gaining kudos from the OEM.

SOLUTION PROVIDERS

MORE THAN BETTER STEEL.
BETTER SOLUTIONS.

The continued drive for lightweighting. Or a specific, persistent failure mode. When an automotive customer has a challenge or problem, our application engineers want to get the first call. At U. S. Steel, careful listening, creative thinking and cross-functional collaboration turn better steel into better solutions.
