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., it manufactures a wide range of value-added steel sheet and tubular products for the automotive, appliance, container, industrial machinery, construction, and oil and gas industries.
U. S. Steel’s vision is to be the industry leader in delivering high-quality, value added products and innovative solutions that address customers’ most challenging steel needs for the future. Underlying its efforts is belief that U. S. Steel must operate as a principled company committed to a code of conduct that is rooted in Gary Principles and core values. U. S. Steel’s core values are articulated in S.T.E.E.L. principles set forth in recently updated Code of Ethical Business Conduct – Safety First, Trust and Respect, Environmentally Friendly Activities, Ethical Behavior, and Lawful Business Conduct. These core beliefs have served U. S. Steel well for much of history, and commitment to them remains as strong as the products U. S. Steel’s staffs make every day.
Its vision is about more than U. S. Steel; it is about reinforcing the economic and societal benefits associated with strong domestic manufacturing capabilities, of which steel is a foundational industry. During 2018, the corporation’s regent continued to transform U. S. Steel through a disciplined approach committed to finding ways to innovate, grow, and overcome obstacles in order to create value and benefit the long-term interests of all U. S. Steel stakeholders, including stockholders, employees, customers and the communities where U. S. Steel does business. This work also included the development of a refreshed corporate strategy designed to build on strengths and maximize the advantages U. S. Steel has over competition. Its strategy builds on proven processes and tools for intense daily operational focus on safety, quality, delivery and cost. This refreshed strategy was approved by the Board of Directors in July 2018 and incorporates three critical success factors: winning in the most attractive markets, moving down the cost curve and moving up the talent curve.
