GREEN STEEL VERSATILITY
MINI MILL EXCELLENCE AT WORK.Our Big River mill was built from the ground up to innovate. With the world’s first Flex Mill®, U. S. Steel is better equipped than ever to bring the versatility, agility and sustainability of mini mill technology to the development of advanced sustainable steels such as verdeX® steel for automotive customers. Next: investment in a new line to expand production of NGO steels that will help our customers meet growing demand for next-generation EVs, planned for completion by second-half 2023.
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.
MORE THAN BETTER STEEL.
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.
