The Challenge

American-made steel has been the foundation of the nation’s economy for more than a century, and today’s steel is up for the job of creating the future: it’s light, modern and strong, and there is nothing else like it.

Our steel industry today faces major challenges. Exporters of steel send their product to our country under free trade pretenses, but the truth is actually much different. Many steel exporters are propping up their industries with below-market financial support and other unfair trade practices.

Many nations export steel into the United States that could be sub-standard in quality, made by workers under conditions that would not be tolerated in this country and by companies that are often state-owned. This stacks the international trade structure against American manufacturing, American workers and consumers. While the U.S. steel industry must compete on an unfair playing field that threatens more than jobs: it threatens communities, American safety and an entire industry that has lost nearly 50,000 jobs since the year 2000.

Majestic Steel USA believes that we are beyond the point of accepting this misguided and unfair concept of “fair trade.” In fact, for many global industries, particularly steel, the current environment supports “unfair trade.”

The domestic steel industry produces the lowest cost and highest quality steels of any nation. We now make more than 60 percent of steel produced from recycled material and have innovated the production process for efficiency and sustainability.

With the current Administration’s pledge to rebuild our infrastructure – now made acute with the rebuilding of Houston, one of Majestic’s home bases — we must act now to ensure that free, but truly fair, trade rules are enacted so that the U.S.A. can remain safe, secure and independent while we accelerate job growth and our economy.

Majestic and our many associates, customers, suppliers and partners across the country lead the way in understanding America’s global trade challenges and are developing policy solutions to ensure that American-made steel propels the American economic engine and protects our great nation.

Todd M. Leebow
President and CEO, Majestic Steel USA

Todd Leebow, President and CEO of Majestic Steel USA, is an American industrialist from Cleveland, Ohio. Now 32, Todd stands at the helm of the family business founded in 1979 by his father out of a small office on Carter Street in Solon, Ohio.

Todd attended public school in Cleveland. As a hard worker and fast learner, he quickly advanced into an accelerated program, but his education didn’t end when the school bell rang. At home, a classroom unto itself, Todd was a student of steel and diligently observed the family business and the industry.

Todd’s career path took a cross-country route before bringing him back to Cleveland. With a passion for sports and entertainment, Todd studied business management and entrepreneurship at the University of Miami.

Todd’s entrepreneurial vision led him from Florida to Los Angeles where he launched an independent film production company. Ever a student, Todd learned on the job and strived to simultaneously educate and entertain through vivid storytelling. In 2007, upon the request of his father, Todd put away his camera to run the family business. He was 22.

It wasn’t long before Todd saw the opportunity to de-commoditize steel through culture and innovation by using technology to develop market intelligence. Over time, Todd continued to modernize Majestic, crafting it into a business capable of withstanding the global economic recession that began in 2008.

Todd didn’t rest on his early successes, and instead chose to double down and re-invest in the business by hiring new employees, building a new headquarters office and plant, and developing proprietary software to run the business through custom web portals and mobile apps that were built in-house. In recognition of its leadership and relentless pursuit of innovation, Majestic won multiple top workplace awards for Northeast Ohio.

Under Todd’s leadership, Majestic developed robust market intelligence, research and analytics capabilities that continue to guide the business through the volatile and declining U.S. steel industry. Even in the midst of the downturn, in a market flooded by imports, Majestic remained focused on growth and expansion. Majestic acquired Flatrolled Steel Inc., based in Texas, in 2013.

Todd believes passionately in America and American steel. His vision to return steel to its place at the front of American industry will create jobs, self-sustaining local communities and rebuild our nation’s infrastructure. Todd has subsequently diversified his ventures and investments, beyond a core business that could be leveraged and scaled across nearly every industry to realize his dream of a thriving Cleveland and prosperous America.

A natural born leader, visionary and businessman, Todd doesn’t fear failure. Leveraging his knowledge of government trade and polices and long-term investments, which position the company for growth, Todd is uniquely able to focus on the present without losing sight of the future. His vision, instinct and work ethic allow him to dissect global market movements, take calculated risks and successfully manage Majestic through even the most challenging of times.

Todd M. Leebow

Todd Leebow is president and CEO of Majestic Steel USA, an Ohio-based nationwide steel service center and master distributor of steel, which has operated at the heart of the American steel industry since 1979. Majestic provides the essential building component – modern, light and strong steel – to thousands of customers, including manufacturers at the core of U.S. construction, national defense, transportation, energy, agriculture, appliance and equipment fabrication. This market reach provides the company a unique and broad perspective on the American and world economies, particularly relating to job creation and international trade.

Todd Leebow joined the company in 2007 at a time when the industry faced heightened foreign competition. Todd discarded the plans to dispose of the company and positioned Majestic at the intersection of manufacturing and technology. While others turned to imported steel on pricing pressure, Majestic stood by American steel mills, and today under Todd’s leadership, the company purchases more than 90 percent of its product domestically.

Under his intense commitment to modernize Majestic, Todd, now 32, empowered his workforce, infused technology throughout the company, and introduced data-driven systems, analysis, and real-time analytic tools more commonly associated with Silicon Valley than what many characterized as an “old economy business.” Todd is a businessman, entrepreneur, innovator and philanthropist who believes passionately in America. This powerful Majestic analytic data provides visibility into the implications of steel trade policies and their potential impact on U.S. interests, including, American jobs and economy, national defense, infrastructure, manufacturing, foreign relations, and the steel industry itself. He continually innovates business through his leadership decisions at Majestic, giving back to the community, and reinvesting in the American steel industry, that builds, protects, supports and shelters our nation.

Majestic purchases steel from every domestic mill and maintains one of the largest inventories of coated steel in the United States. The company procures, stocks, processes, and distributes nearly a billion pounds of steel annually to more than 6,000 locations nationwide. Founded by Todd’s father, Majestic’s distribution network touches almost every state in the continental U.S., as well as, locations across Canada and Mexico. The company operates facilities located in Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida and Alabama, and extends its reach with additional offices in Georgia, Tennessee, Colorado and Minnesota.

Majestic works with more than 400 common carriers across the country and their thousands of truck drivers. The company also supports the jobs of thousands more American workers who depend upon steel – the true backbone of America – including the metals industry that thrives on the planet’s most recycled material, steel.

A product of the Cleveland-area public schools and the University of Miami, Todd was officially named president and CEO of Majestic in 2012. He has continued to expand the company, building the brand and Majestic’s advanced, data-driven infrastructure, increasing sales and acquiring businesses. Beyond its responsibilities to associates and customers, Majestic is committed to making America a better – and safer – place to live and work. Its dedication to community and charitable causes has earned Majestic 11 Best Place to Work awards. Todd has cultivated a collaborative team culture and Majestic today continues to employ many multi-generational family members.

Steel is the very fiber of our nation; the single most critical building block of American strength and security.

At the end of the 19th Century, Andrew Carnegie led the creation of industrialized American steel. Following his adoption of the Bessemer process to mass produce affordable steel, the nation’s infrastructure boomed. As a direct result of abundant, readily available steel, buildings grew taller, bridges extended and railroads crisscrossed the nation with greater durability.

The Model T, widely considered the world’s first affordable automobile, was made possible by steel. Its inventor, Henry Ford, like Carnegie, was an advocate of material engineering. The Model T’s front axle and all of the car’s gears were forged from vanadium steel alloy.

Today, our infrastructure – roads, bridges, buildings and cars – are all built with steel. The complex mechanisms that enable global trade and power the global economy depend on airplanes, ships and trains that are built with steel. Remove steel and modern America would be unrecognizable, long destroyed by Mother Nature or left behind by stronger, more advanced nations.

America is often considered great because of its intangible principles: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But America is also great because of the very real, very tangible benefits of steel: jobs created, products invented and infrastructure built.
It’s the steel of America’s spine that protects this great nation from war and human life could not survive without it.

Aligned with the forward progress of humanity, steel is the most recycled material in America. More than 60 percent of new steel is made from recycled scrap metal, a product of the last 30 years of innovation. Even alternative energy needs steel.

American steel is the culmination of four thousand years of dedication to the process that strips the impurities from raw iron and alloys the necessary elements to produce different grades of steel. Manufactured at lower costs than at any point in history, steel made today is stronger and lighter – key characteristics of a safe, energy-efficient building material.

Highly engineered from different metallic components for a variety of functional purposes, steel is the most durable, sustainable product man has ever created. It can handle stress, is formable and can be flexible without breaking.

Steel has stood the test of time, aging gracefully against the worst hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis nature can muster. Steel makes the best roof over our heads, frames of our trucks, cages of our automobiles and supports our bridges. America makes the best steel on earth.
