We are a vertically integrated, high-value steel enterprise. We have the unique advantage of being self-sufficient, beginning with the extraction of raw materials through the manufacturing of steel products, tubular components and stamping and tooling.

Cleveland-Cliffs received several prestigious industry awards for our performance in 2021, and ranked #171 on the 2022 Fortune 500 List.
