ArcelorMittal continues its rise from the rubble of the 9/11 attacks with a new contract to supply the steel plate for New York City’s newest skyscraper.

The Coatesville steelmaker is already on the job of sending steel plate for the under-construction, 58-story, midtown Manhattan spectacle that will be addressed as One Vanderbilt, according to a Daily Local News report by Brian McCullough.

“ArcelorMittal USA Plate is proud and honored to be a supplier to One Vanderbilt tower,” said COO John Battisti. “We are currently in the process of producing the ‘heavy section’ plate products at our Coatesville facility.

“This project is another example of ArcelorMittal USA Plate being a force in the redefining of the New York City skyline in recent years since 9/11, which also includes our supply of plate products to the majestic Freedom Tower.”

The 1.7 million square feet of One Vanderbilt is expected to make it New York City’s fourth-tallest building, reaching 1,401 feet by its 2020 completion target.

And it has Coatesville and ArcelorMittal reaching for new heights as well.

“The steel business is cyclical,” said United Steelworkers’ 1165-00 Unit President Sheldon “Snoop” Gregg. “With the economy improving, we’re starting to climb our way out.”
