Our robust recycling strategy keeps metals in the circular economy instead of going to landfills.

Our Performance

We have a proven track record of continuously improving operational efficiencies and providing additional value to our customers. For every ton of steel produced, CMC conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone by recycling scrap steel and melting it in an EAF. Our EAF micro and mini mills produce 65% less carbon dioxide emissions than the industry average. Additionally, our products do not contain any hazardous substances or release any dangerous substances to the environment. As a result of our operational efficiencies, we have received multiple recognitions from the Steel Manufacturers Association over the years.

CMC steel is renowned for its strength, dependability and innovative qualities. But the same can be said of our people. Like the products they create, these folks have a way of exceeding the highest expectations. Probably because they refuse to deliver anything less than the best.
