We have some very good equipment and processes at US Steel, our automotive product is excellent. The issue is that we are not a 'fully integrated' steel plant meaning USS cannot convert its slabs to a 168" roll (I think that size is correct) on site. The slabs are shipped to other plants to be converted to rolls.

Stelco also was one of the few mills in North America that made safety critical steel, such as for suspension parts. This has to be the finest steel on the market due to the incredible liability issues if it fails and causes deaths. The new owner of the BB&B, Max Aicher, bought the bar mill because of the excellent product line that mill runs.

The steel made there is some of the best in the world, please don't think it is a quality issue when it is not. Some very poor product line choices in the past hurt Stelco while some great product line choices made Dofasco the powerhouse it is.
