7 Secrets Your Steel Suppliers Won’t Tell You, Adam Osborn
By 1889, US steel output was greater than the United Kingdom and Carnegie’s empire was the greatest.
In 1892, Carnegie combined all his and associates assets into the Carnegie Steel Company.
Carnegie was 66 years old in 1901, close to retirement and ready to sell his industrial assets.
During the same time, John Pierpont Morgan was an American banker and financier who dominated US industrial consolidation.
Morgan and Elbert H. Gary founded United States Steel on March 2, 1901. It was formed by combining Carnegie Steel Company, Federal Steel Company and National Steel Company.
U.S. Steel was the first billion dollar corporation in the world. The Carnegie Steel Company buyout was secretly negotiated by Charles M. Schwab for $303,450,000. For his share, Carnegie received $225 million in 5%, 50-year gold bonds.
