The properties of steel make innovation possible, ideas turn into reality, solutions can be found, and possibilities become real. Steel makes the art of engineering possible and makes engineering aesthetic.
New lightweight steels enable applications to become lighter and more flexible while maintaining the required high strength.
Modern steel products have never been more sophisticated. From smart car design to high-tech computers, from cutting-edge medical equipment to the most advanced satellites, modern steel product applications are inseparable.
Architects can create any shape or span they want, and steel structures can meet their innovative design needs.
New and better methods of modern steel manufacturing are invented every year.
In 1937, 83,000 tons of steel were used to build the Golden Gate Bridge; today, only half that amount is needed.
More than 75% of the steel in use today was not available 20 years ago.
