U. S. Steel has been committed to being a major supplier of quality sheet products. To demonstrate our continuing commitment, we have invested substantial amounts of money and effort to upgrade our sheet-producing facilities.
Sheet product information has been organized into distinct sections for hot-rolled, cold-rolled, and coated sheet products. The primary focus is product information, but also included is a considerable amount of processing information to enable you to better understand how each of these product types is manufactured.
Aside from adding new and/or improved equipment, we have dedicated ourselves to continuous process improvement through our APEX (All People, All Process, All Product EXcellence) program. To improve our process and product quality on a continuing basis, the APEX system provides for continuous measurement of performance and continuous feedback from customers and vendors. At each plant, APEX has formal action plans that are continuously updated, to keep day-to-day processes in control, to reduce product variability, and to identify areas for quality improvement.
Our commitment to being a supplier of quality products includes our efforts to provide you with comprehensive information about our products along with online tools such as a glossary and metric conversion guide so that, together, we can determine the best steel for your applications.
