ArcelorMittal USA Achieves Plate Certification

Written by Tim Triplett

ArcelorMittal’s three plate facilities in the United States—Burns Harbor in Burns Harbor, Ind., and Coatesville and Conshohocken in Pennsylvania—have each achieved DNV-GL certification, which will allow the company to expand business opportunities domestically and internationally for its plate products.

DNV-GL (Germanischer Lloyd) is a classification society that sets rules and standards for industries, especially maritime-related markets. They establish best practices by means of quality codes, standards and documentation. These criteria ensure manufacturing compliance and allow conditions whereby warranties and insurance criteria are met.

“As the largest, full-line plate producer in the United States, we recognize the importance of expanding our portfolio of certifications to include DNV-GL. We trust this additional certification in our quality standards will serve us well in the future and help broaden our plate presence in various domestic and global industries,” says John Battisti, chief operating officer of ArcelorMittal USA Plate.

ArcelorMittal USA Plate produces a variety of American-made steel plate products including: high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA); commercial and military alloy; flame-cut products; and coiled and discrete plate. These steels are used in many markets including construction, distribution, energy, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.

“We anticipate this additional certification will grant us entry into various industries and international applications that we previously were unable to secure. It should also open the door to more export, shipbuilding and energy-related requests for quotation, including wind tower and offshore oil platforms,” said Matt Habenicht, sales manager, ArcelorMittal USA Plate.
