"This program is very flexible. It’s not just about lighting upgrades."
- Michael Lue, Engineering Manager ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks

Laser welding is ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks’ core business. However, the same laser welding equipment the Concord-based manufacturer used to help automotive companies stay competitive was digging into operating costs, so plant engineers decided it was time to upgrade. “The Retrofit Program allowed us to move our business to a whole new level by making our laser welding process more energy efficient,” says Engineering Manager, Michael Lue.
