Immaculata monument was ceremoniously illuminated by City Mayor Frantisek Knapik and U. S. Steel Kosice President David H. Lohr. For the first time the Kosice Christmas market on the
Main Street includes a hut run by U. S. Steel Kosice.
Second Slovak Gold Medal for Korad radiator
Last week was especially successful for the Korad plus radiator produced by U. S. Steel Kosice. Right after this product was shown at the 13th edition of
the annual international trade fair for central heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, measuring, regulating, sanitary and ecological equipment AQUA-THERM in Prague, catching the attention of
the assessment committee from the Design Center of the Czech Republic, who nominated the panel radiator for the Outstanding Product of 2007 award, it then so impressed the notoriously strict
committee from the Slovak Gold Foundation that they awarded it the Slovak Gold Medal and Certificate. This is the second time this panel radiator made at the Secondary Metallurgical Products
Division has gained this prestigious award. On the same occasion, the Slovak Gold Exclusive Certificate was awarded to Kosice-Saca a.s. 1st Private Hospital, making it the first health-care
institution in Slovakia to gain this Certificate.

Approximately fifty works stemming from this year's international Metal Inspirations workshop and 24 large-format photographs capturing the work of young designers

showings at the U. S. Steel Kosice Gallery, Kosice-Saca a.s. 1st Private Hospital and the Brno International Engineering Fair, this is the fourth presentation of works by design school
students from Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
