 USS-POSCO SETS NEW NORTH AMERICAN RECORD
 SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- USS-POSCO Industries,


California's largest steel company, has set a new record for steel produced during a 24-hour period. On Dec. 2, the company's super- modern Pickle Line Tandem Cold Mill (PLTCM) turned out 6,666,738 feet of steel, or 3,281 tons.
 This establishes a new production record for a steel finishing facility in North America. The previous record high was 5,660,000 feet, set by the Gary Works of U.S. Steel. Prior to setting the record, the highest 24-hour production level at USS-POSCO was 5,882,139 feet which occurred during Oct. 1991.
 "Since the start up of our 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 trained workforce operate 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 -- California 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.
