German steel will be used in new World Trade Center

- the use of Buy America policy whenever possible for infrastructure projects and public works.

German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp has announced that its subsidiary ThyssenKrupp Nirosta will supply stainless steel for the ‘One World Trade Center' (1 WTC) that is being built in New York. According to a ThyssenKrupp release, the corners of the skyscraper's facade will be edged with stainless steel produced at ThyssenKrupp's Nirosta Dillenburg plant.
