Author: USS Košice

Kosice, November 8th, 2010 - This evening the ceremonial handing over of the 2010 Slovak Republic National Quality Awards took place in the historical building of the National Parliament of the Slovak Republic in Bratislava. U. S. Steel Kosice took first place in the category of big organizations with more than 251 employees. The President of the company George F. Babcoke, on receiving the award, said: "This kind of recognition is very important to us. It shows our customers that our company continues to drive continuous improvement in our quality practices and the discipline of our quality management system." The steelmaking company was also awarded this prize in 2002. This year's recognition of the high standard of the quality management system is good news and acknowledgement for the employees of the company, which is now celebrating the ten-year anniversary of starting business in Slovakia.

The steelmaking company is successful in the field of quality on the international level as well. In October of this year U. S. Steel Kosice was included among the strategic partners of Ford Motor Company with its Q1 certificate designation, and in June of last year it was awarded a similar prize, the VW Group Award 2009, by another worldwide car producer Volkswagen.
