Steelmaker ArcelorMittal has hammered out new opportunities for its Coatesville steel plate business thanks to a new certification that proves its rigorous manufacturing quality standards.
ArcelorMittal hopes for new shipbuilding and energy contracts to sail in thanks to the DNV-GL certification, according to a Daily Local News report by Brian McCullough.
“As the largest, full-line plate producer in the United States, we recognize the importance of expanding our portfolio of certifications to include DNV-GL,” said COO John Battisti. “DNV-GL is well-respected internationally. We trust this additional certification in our quality standards will serve us well in the future and help broaden our plate presence in various domestic and global industries.”
The breakthrough provides a little more job security for Coatesville’s 733 ArcelorMittal employees.
“Securing the DNV-GL certification has resulted in more business and opportunities for our plate mills,” said Division Manager of External Communications Mary Beth Holdford. “While the certification does not directly translate into more jobs, it does support the sustainability of our current workforce.”
