This week, we kicked off the 50th anniversary celebration of the ArcelorMittal Global Research and Development (R&D) Center in East Chicago, Indiana. It was August 1967 when the iconic building on Columbus Drive was inaugurated – a first of its kind industrial building showcasing the myriad of ways steel is used in construction. The festivities, which will continue throughout the summer, recognize the important role the center plays in innovating new steelmaking processes, products and solutions for our customers, while celebrating the diversity of the people who make it all possible.

My father, William Nichols, enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1953, two years after graduating from high school. He met my mother, Bernadine, while stationed at Naval Station Great Lakes. He served as a seaman in the Korean War onboard the USS Hornet, where he maintained the aircraft carrier’s radio antennae. When I reflect on my father’s service, one thing that resonated with me was knowing that steel made at Lukens Steel in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, located just 30 minutes from our family home, was actually in the aircraft carrier that my father lived on while at sea.

ArcelorMittal USA published our first annual corporate responsibility report in 2009. Just eight pages long, that report was an important first step for our United States business. In fact, that report’s letter from leadership ended with exactly that sentiment. It said, “Please accept this report as a representation of the beginning of our journey.” And it was.

ArcelorMittal’s Q1 2017 results, announced on Friday, May 12, reflect a much improved performance for the global business as a whole, recognizing the positive momentum in the world steel market and the strides we have made internally to make our business stronger. 

To understand what this means for our business in the United States, we need to delve a little deeper. Please allow me to offer some clarity on our Q1 performance and 2017 outlook.

At ArcelorMittal, the health and safety of our employees is our most important priority. It drives our work in every way. On April 28, ArcelorMittal employees around the world gather for Health and Safety Day – a time when our colleagues are asked to stop, think and reflect on their own health and safety, and the health and safety of the men and women around them.
