Customer Technical Symposia
We offer carbon steel and stainless steel technical symposia multiple times a year to all customers interested in learning more about steelmaking and our products and applications. These symposia include a mix of customer disciplines including R&D engineers, production, quality, sales, and purchasing. Each symposium includes a steel making overview and the associated products and applications at each step of the process. Customers will also receive in depth tours of a fully integrated steel mill and world class Research and Innovation Center that opened in 2017. Attendees can also choose a set of workshops that interest them most.
Examples of the various workshops include:
- High Strength Steels
