On Argentina's Metallurgist Day, we invited a group of collaborators to share the formula to make the material that represents us. Through them, today we celebrate all men and women of steel.
For all of us who are a part of Ternium, steel is much more than just the alloy of iron and carbon. We make sustainable steel with technological innovation, safety, and continuous improvement of all our processes. We make steel with passion, a sense of belonging, and commitment. We make steel with the experience of those who transmit a legacy and the humbleness of an apprentice. We make steel by getting strength from the diversity of perspectives, disciplines, and generations.
