Late last week, Harsco Corporation announced that its Metals & Minerals division has expanded its business relationship with AK Steel, a leading U.S. producer of flat-rolled steel products. The agreement calls for the use of Harsco’s innovative ScrapMaster™ program for scrap management services including inbound scrap handling and inspection, basket preparation and hauling, and delivery route maintenance at AK Steel’s Mansfield site. Harsco also currently provides similar services at AK Steel’s site in Butler, Pennsylvania.
Harsco Metals & Minerals Chief Operating Officer Chris Whistler pointed to the AK Steel contract expansion as both a key step in Harsco’s overarching growth strategy, as well as confirmation of its commitment to customer service and satisfaction. “This new contract further increases our presence in the United States, which will prove invaluable as U.S. economic growth positively impacts stainless steel consumption,” he said. “Significantly, this new agreement signals AK Steel’s confidence in our ability to deliver on our promises. We could not be more pleased to have the opportunity to further build on this already longstanding relationship.”
Located in north central Ohio, AK Steel’s Mansfield Works includes production of specialty flat-rolled stainless steels that meet the demands of an array of complex end-use applications, such as automotive fuel and safety systems, appliances, cutlery, HVAC equipment, and processing equipment.
