Which STEEL COMPANIES do have highrises/skyscrapers as HQs??

Hello, I am doing some research on this subject, but so far the only steel company with HQ in a highrise is Posco from Korea. I really want your help if you know of other steel companies with highrises and also pics from them!

Thanks!

the registered HQ of Mittal Steel, world's largest steel corp., is in the 'Hofpoort' building (former Shell tower) in Rotterdam, Netherlands. However its administrative HQ, so where the boss really has his office is in mayfair in london because of the more representative location as well as the fact that mittal is indian and therefore has stronger ties with the UK. The office in Rotterdam is only part of the tower and is based here due to the port of Rotterdam where a lot of Mittal's steel is transported through and because of the tax climate here. However Mittal does fly its flags on the roof of the building nowadays so might be interesting for you.

also, your list takes into account only production, where that list I posted, and many others, preffer to take into account many other factors when ranking steel companies. (specially revenues)
well, this list is also wrong, since it doesnt even lists CSN and Vale do Rio Doce, the two largest brazilian steel manufacturers (Gerdau is the 3rd largest, and appears in 13th in the list)

I know one in Pittsburgh. I think they are several US steel companies that have their HQ in several skyscrapers around this city.

US Steel Tower, Pittsburgh

May be, I must confess to you that I'm not master of ranking ; but "your" list is obsolete : it's only what I wanted to say...

For your information, you are allowed to change the Wikipedia page and tell to everyone the truth
