Big River Steel, Array Technologies Share Common Values

Written by Sandy Williams

Big River Steel announced it will be the long-term provider of high-quality steel products to Array Technologies, an industry-leading solar tracking manufacturer.

Array was committed to finding a source of steel products that would allow the company to maintain its commitment to providing reliable renewable energy not only in their product design but also through their supply chain. Big River Steel met that criteria as the only steel producer LEED certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in the world.

The two companies noted they also share a dedication to being technology leaders in their respective fields. For 30 years, Array has focused exclusively on designing and manufacturing solar tracking equipment by utilizing engineered simplicity to create sophisticated solutions for complex problems. Big River is the newest and most technologically advanced flat-rolled mill in North America with a focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

“I don’t know that I have seen two companies more aligned in their values than Array Technologies and Big River Steel,” said Keith Shuttlesworth, chief commercial officer at Big River. “In meeting Jim [Fusaro, CEO at Array Technologies] and his team, it soon became obvious both companies are dedicated to implementing technology advances in both our production efforts as well as our commitment to the environment. This is exactly the type of partnership we knew our approach to steelmaking could attract, and we are thrilled to be working with the team at Array Technologies.”
