US Steel Realigns Commercial Entities

Written by Sandy Williams

US Steel Corp is realigning its flat-rolled operations and management as part of its Carnegie Way transformation. The flat-rolled facilities will report through three consolidated commercial entities: Automotive Solutions, Consumer Solutions, and Industrial, Service Center and Mining Solutions.

“The commercial entities have worked to position our company to be best-in-class in innovation, customer service and solutions,” said Mario Longhi, President and Chief Executive Officer of United States Steel. “This strategic move to align operations within the streamlined commercial entities enhances our ability to better hear the voice of the customer, ensuring that we deliver superior value and drive results in this ever-changing market.”

Automotive Solutions, led by Senior Vice President Jim Bruno, will be based in Troy, Mich., at the Automotive Center. The segment will include operations at Great Lakes Works, EGL at Dearborn (formerly DESCO), Midwest Plant in Portage, Ind., and the 50-50 joint venture PRO-TEC Coating Company in Ohio. The facilities serve the automotive industry and the development of next generation advanced high strength steels.

Consumer Solutions will focus on customers in the appliance, packaging, container and construction markets and will be led by Senior Vice President Sara Greenstein. Facilities serving Consumer Solutions include Mon Valley Works and East Chicago Tin as well as the Fairfield Works #5 Coating line and the Double G joint venture, both in Alabama.

Industrial, Service Center and Mining Solutions will serve customers in the pipe and tube manufacturing market along with agricultural, industrial equipment and service center markets. The segment will be led by Senior Vice President Douglas R. Matthews and will include the Gary Works facility and Granite City Works. He will also have operational responsibility for the mining activities at Minnesota Ore Operations in Minntac and Keetac and US Steel’s iron ore equity ventures.

The commercial entity realignments will not change existing reporting segments of North American Flat-Rolled Products, Tubular Products and US Steel Europe.

Geoff Turk, current Vice President, Service Center Solutions, will oversee the transition and integration of the Industrial and Service Center Solutions teams before leaving for other opportunities in Q1 2016.

Mark Table, previously Vice President – Tubular Operations, will transition to the position of Vice-President-Global Quality and Manufacturing Processes, effective immediately.
