Our values

Since the establishment of our company, our goal has been to operate on the basis of three values: sustainability, quality, and leadership. Each of these three values is based on health and safety.

Health and safety

Our priorities are health and safety. Nothing is more important. We believe that we cannot make a credible claim to our values if we do not continuously improve our health and safety performance.

Sustainability

Our commitment to the world around us extends beyond the bottom line, to include the people in whom we invest, the communities we support and the world in which we operate. This long-term approach is central to our business philosophy.

Quality

We look beyond today to envision the steel of tomorrow. Because quality outcomes depend on quality people, we seek to attract and nurture the best people to deliver superior solutions to our customers.

Leadership

We are visionary thinkers, creating opportunities every day. This entrepreneurial spirit brought us to the forefront of the steel industry. Now, we are moving beyond what the world expects of steel.
