U. S. Steel Corporation President and CEO Mario Longhi visits Kosice steelmakers

     The President and Chief Executive Officer of the United States Steel Corporation Mario Longhi recently spent a working stay in Europe which included a meeting with Kosice steelmakers. He had a full program during his brief stopover in the Company, consisting mainly of familiarizing himself with the instruments of the Carnegie, Our Way initiative. On Thursday, August 21, he looked round the Company's primary operations, then took part in a meeting in the War Room, where working groups give reports on the current state of projects involved in the transformation process here. On Friday, August 22, he discussed ongoing events in the Corporation with U. S. Steel Kosice managers.

Timmy R. West leaves Kosice after 14 years

     He can easily call Slovakia is second home. Timmy R. West has spent the last fourteen years in Kosice. His first contact with our steelworks came in 1999, when he worked here as a member of the acquisition team. Once the works became part of the U. S. Steel Corporation, in 2000 he became General Manager Accounting, then he was involved in the ERP project, and since 2007 he has worked as Deputy GM Strategic Raw Materials Procurement. This position was also his last, because on August 31 he took his retirement after 37 years of service in the Corporation.

More than forty works in metal exhibited in Kosice's STM

     Original artworks made out of metal, created by young designers during this year's international Metal Inspirations workshop, are now being exhibited in the Slovakian Technical Museum in Kosice. The official opening took place in the early evening of last Wednesday, August 27, attended by U. S. Steel Kosice President George F. Babcoke, Vice Rector for Science and Research at the Technical University of Kosice Stanislav Kmet, and the Principal of the Kosice-Saca Metallurgical Vocational School Jozef Sablatura. Not by chance either. The twelve annual editions of this event to date are the result of successful cooperation between these same three institutions, which the speakers confirmed in their speeches to the workshop participants and the guests. The designers' works are going to serve a good cause as well, because interested buyers will be able to bid for them in an auction to be organized by the steelmaking company, the proceeds of which will be used for charitable purposes.
