ArcelorMittal USA’s John Brett comments on Administration’s order to investigate the impact of steel imports on national security
CHICAGO – April 20, 2017 – John Brett, president and CEO of ArcelorMittal USA, joined other steel industry executives at the White House today where an executive order was signed by President Donald Trump. This order will launch a “Section 232” national security investigation by the Department of Commerce to determine whether steel imports threaten our national security.
“We very much appreciate the Administration’s decision to initiate and expedite the Section 232 investigation. ArcelorMittal USA is a proud supplier of American-made steel for national defense applications, from nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers to missiles and tanks," said Brett. "Additionally, the steel we produce for the energy and infrastructure markets is critical to our economic and national security. The global steel market is in crisis because of China’s excess steel capacity, and we welcome the Administration’s efforts to aggressively address this problem.”
