Steel is a major part of most people’s everyday lives in the United States. Perhaps the name most often associated with steel is Andrew Carnegie for those who live in the “Steel City” of Pittsburgh. And if you are anywhere near Pittsburgh, Steeler football is not far away.
The Steel Capital of the World
During the 1920’s, Pittsburgh produced 1/3 of the nations steel. At this time, Pittsburgh was the steel capital of the world. The steel technology from Carnegie’s time has now been replaced by the modern steel industry which includes equipment supplied by Power Conversion Technologies.
