Founded in 1901, United States Steel Corporation is an integrated steel producer with major production operations in the United States and Central Europe. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., we manufacture a wide range of value-added steel sheet and tubular products for the automotive, appliance, container, industrial machinery, construction, and oil and gas industries.
At U. S. Steel, creating value for our stakeholders is a priority. That starts with safety in our workplaces. Safety is our most important core value. We remain firmly committed to our ultimate safety goal: zero incidents and injuries companywide. We are proud of the improvements we’ve made and our safety leadership within our industry. However, we will not be satisfied with just being good at safety. That’s not good enough. We owe it to each other and our families to be great.
U. S. Steel has been making steel for more than a century, always with an eye on serving our customers’ needs in the most cost-effective ways possible. To ensure the company’s long-term success, we’re transforming through The Carnegie Way.
The Carnegie Way looks at all aspects of our business to find ways we can improve. That includes processes, products and our culture. Started in 2013, it provides employees with a structured way to identify solutions that create value, drive innovation and ignite change. The Carnegie Way is moving us in the right direction. The numbers prove it. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, we realized $575 million, $815 million and $745 million in Carnegie Way benefits. These figures represent sustainable improvements to our business, not temporary cost cuts.
Our products remain the backbone of iconic landmarks across the United States. While the specific products we make today are different than in years past, what we make and why we do it are no less important. Steel surrounds us. It makes daily life safer, easier and better. And steel’s possibilities for the future are endless.
