A century of stainless steel celebrated with website
It is 100 years since stainless steels were first created, patented and produced and in order to celebrate this centenary a new website has been launched by the International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF).
Developed by SCI, the website is dedicated to the history of stainless steel and its innovative applications, including articles with images from the past century.
Rick Sims of SCI Technology Services said: “ISSF is a long standing client of SCI’s, and we are delighted to have collaborated with them to deliver this latest project. The site is visually exciting and technically it offers a first class content management system.”
Stainless steel production has increased from 19.2M metric tonnes in 2001 to a record 31M metric tonnes in 2010. As the sustainability benefits of stainless steel become better known, that growth is likely to increase, as the material has a low carbon footprint and is 100% recyclable.
