The State of Indiana is once again leading the U.S. in Steel Production.

The Hoosier State produced 21.6 million tons of steel in 2020, a drop of more than 3 million tons but still enough to account for 27% of the nation’s steel production.

Inside Indiana Business reports that numbers from the American Iron and Steel Institute say The Hoosier State has been the nation’s largest producer of steel since at least 1980.

More than half of the nation’s blast furnace capacity is located in Lake and Porter Counties.
