For the third consecutive year, U. S. Steel will sponsor the “Hack the Home” event hosted by GE Appliances’ FirstBuild, offering Amazon Echo devices to the team that uses steel as the material of choice in the most innovative appliance solution. “Steel Your Future,” U. S. Steel’s sponsorship theme, aligns with GE Appliances’ and FirstBuild’s mission to drive and foster innovation through material and service excellence. Several U. S. Steel technical and commercial innovators will be on hand during the event in September to offer guidance and expertise to teams of participants, while educating future engineers on the benefits of using steel.
With the support of GE Appliances, FirstBuild creators have access to the engineering talent and leading- edge equipment needed to create the next latest and greatest product for the consumer appliance market.
“As a key supplier to GE Appliances, we sincerely appreciate their engagement in this collaborative, forward-looking community of invention,” said Dan Morris, Appliance and Electrical Business Lead at U. S. Steel. “With our shared history of more than a century of U.S. manufacturing excellence, we are extremely enthusiastic to see U. S. Steel and GE Appliances continuing to build together for future generations.”
