The blog of ArcelorMittal USA

It is important to understand the progress we've made and the opportunities and challenges that still lie ahead. Last year was an important transition year for ArcelorMittal USA. We spent the year undergoing important strategic restructuring in our operations, setting our business on course for a stronger future. We cut costs significantly across the business, idled non-essential operations... and divested four long carbon facilities. Simultaneously, we invested in our core assets.

In 2017, we’ll be watching a changing political landscape, with a Republican president and Republicans in control of both the house and senate. Our company will work with the new administration on comprehensive solutions to revitalize manufacturing in the United States.

With the North American auto show circuit underway, car enthusiasts are looking at a myriad of vehicle features. These include appearance, price tag, gas mileage, technology features and safety ratings. However, a consideration raising eyebrows among the environmentally conscious is a vehicle’s lifecycle carbon footprint.

One of the many ways we contribute to sustainable development outcomes at ArcelorMittal is through public-private partnerships that build opportunities to be an active and welcome member of the communities where we operate. We recognize it is not enough for ArcelorMittal to be resilient and sustainable, the communities surrounding us must be as well.

In this election year, Democrats and Republicans did something significant - they chose to locate their conventions in the heart of two great manufacturing cities, both of which ArcelorMittal is proud to call home... While grateful for the symbolism of the locations and words, American manufacturing needs more if it is to survive and thrive. We have heard the rhetoric before, from both parties. But the reality doesn’t always match the message.

We need immediate action on day one from whomever gets elected.
