AK Steel’s heritage spans more than 115 years, beginning in 1899 when the company’s predecessor, Armco, was incorporated in Middletown, Ohio. Over the past century, the company has provided jobs to hundreds of thousands of people, given back to its communities and provided pensions and benefits to generations of retirees.

AK Steel’s proud past represents much more than a century of innovation in steelmaking at the company. It demonstrates the corporation’s ability to operate a sustainable business and adapt to more than 100 years of technological, regulatory and economic changes. That is AK Steel’s legacy, which the company will continue to build upon as it moves ahead.

It is no accident that AK Steel consistently outperforms the steel industry safety average by a wide margin. Our value proposition starts, first and foremost, with an unrelenting commitment to employee safety. Simply put, our approach to safety is more than a business objective; it is part of our operating culture. It is our number one priority, because what matters most is having our employees end their shifts as safely as they started them. Since receiving the inaugural Green Cross for Safety Medal from the National Safety Council in 2000, AK Steel has continued to earn significant recognition from industry trade associations and government agencies for its safety performance throughout the years.
