Cleveland-Cliffs Announces the Acquisition of Stelco  View News Release View Announcement Presentation Webcast

Best-in-Class Steel Producer

Cleveland-Cliffs is the largest flat-rolled steel producer in North America.  Our competitive advantage as an integrated steel company is based on our ability to operate the entire production flow from the extraction of iron ore, to steelmaking, rolling, coating, finishing, stamping and tooling steel products.  We have the unique advantage of being self-sufficient with production of raw materials for our steel manufacturing, which includes iron ore pellets, hot briquetted iron (HBI) feedstock, ferrous scrap and coking coal. We produce flat-rolled carbon, stainless, electrical, plate, and long steel products to the manufacturing of downstream complex autoparts and components. Approximately one-third of our steel production is directed toward the automotive sector. Our innovative, high-performance steel products enable automakers to design and build new vehicles that are safer, lighter, and more efficient to operate.


We are the largest flat-rolled steel producer in North America and a leading supplier of automotive steel in the United States.  We produce flat-rolled carbon, stainless, electrical, plate, and long steel products for a variety of end markets, which include automotive, appliance, machinery, equipment, manufacturing, military, packaging, infrastructure, industrial, energy and construction.

Iron Ore, Cokemaking/Coal Mining

We are the largest iron ore pellet producer in North America, with 28 million long tons of annual capacity. Our high-grade, premium pellets are customized for, and fed directly into, our own blast furnaces and direct reduction facility. Our pellets are produced under perhaps the most stringent environmental regulatory framework in the world. We serve growing end-markets for steel, such as automotive, construction, white goods, and manufacturing.

Coking coal, which is further processed into coke, is another important raw material. Cliffs is a producer of metallurgical coal from one mine in West Virginia and producer of coke from our facilities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

With our recently-completed acquisition of Ferrous Processing and Trading Company, we expect to grow our prime scrap presence through existing relationships with industrial steel consumers. FPT currently processes approximately three million tons of scrap per year, approximately half of which is prime grade.
