Outokumpu also supplies steel for SpaceX and is the largest producer of stainless steel in Europe and the second largest producer in the Americas.

I can generate so much news of this!
lets take every single current supplier to Tesla and SpaceX and make individual tweets for each one!
"BHP will supply nickel for TSLA Cybertruck"
"Ganfeng Lithium Co will supply lithium for TSLA Cybertruck"
Glencore will supply cobalt for TSLA Cybertruck"
and so on, and on..
  • Ganfeng Lithium Co.: lithium
  • Glencore: cobalt
  • Modine Manufacturing Co.: battery chiller
  • Rohm And Haas Company: specialty materials

If Outokumpu is the "2nd largest", who is the largest in the Americas (including the United States)? Or is that Steel Dynamics?

How do you pronounce this companies name?
It is hard to surmise just from text.

That’s starting to sound like Mr Hyphenated. Just add “CONFIRMED” and you will have the impression nailed.

This is a difficult one. Maybe: Oh-to-koompoo

But it will still sound off. Oh as in ‘Oh!’ but to as in ‘tolerate’.

If you can get all your ‘u’ sounds to be like the end of ‘oh!’ (kind of like a w), then you’re closer.

Apparently, there are many features of the prototype CT that didn't make it into the production vehicle. The unbreakable glass, the gate ramp, a built-in light bar, three person front seat, compressed air supply, solar roof, presenting door handles, 16" ground clearance, and full width bed. I'm also predicting thinner stainless steel skins :( . But there are other features included in the production vehicle not seen in the prototype: wiper blade, side mirrors, all-wheel steering, front bumper camera, interior ambient lighting, rear seat display, almost round steering wheel, powered frunk lid, garage-able size, bed liner, and things that haven't yet been leaked. Many will be disappointed. Not me. It will still be a wonder to behold.

No. Nucor. Steel Dynamics does a little less than half as much as Nucor.

🤷‍♀️

Correct. NUCOR is the largest steel producer in the USA. Most of their mills are "mini-mills", which produce higher quality steel, especially specialty products like SS. When I built my barbecue, the stainless top I bought from PDM, but it was made by NUCOR.
