Steelmet, Inc. was incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1961 and had operations in McKeesport and offices in Pittsburgh. The company was involved in the secondary metals market.
In 1981, Steelmet was victim to a massive fire at it's McKeepsort plant. An employee using a torch ignited a pile of titanium shavings. The blaze jumped to the roof of one of the old tinplate buildings and soon, much of the complex was on fire.
The company eventually reopened, but never fully recovered, filing for bankruptcy in 1985. Steelmet was eventually absorbed by ELG Metals, Inc., a stainless steel and alloy recycler.
