 USS-POSCO SETS NEW NORTH AMERICAN PRODUCTION RECORD
 SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- USS-POSCO Industries, California's largest steel company, has set a new North American record for steel produced during an eight hour period. On Feb. 14, the swing shift at the company's super-modern Pickle Line Tandem Cold Mill (PLTCM) turned out 2,674,996 feet of steel, or 1,212 tons. The previous record was 2,319,825 feet produced by LTV Corp.
 Last December, USS-POSCO set another new North American production record by turning out 6,666,738 feet of steel, or 3,281 tons, during a 24-hour period.
 "Since the start up of modernized facilities we have been able to produce a very high quality product," said Leonard H. Chuderewicz, president of USS-POSCO. "Now we are starting to hit productivity levels that you can only reach by having a highly skilled workforce operating some of the world's most advanced equipment," he added.
 USS-POSCO Industries is a California general partnership, the partners of which are Pitcal Inc., a direct wholly owned subsidiary of USX Corp. and POSCO-America Corp., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Pohang Iron & Steel Co. Ltd., of the Republic of Korea.
 USS-POSCO produces finished steel for manufacturers and food processors in the Western United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Pacific Rim.
