CHALLENGE

River Shore Steel: The Tech Company that Makes Steel

To realize Josh Patterson's vision, each part of the mill’s operation needed to be connected and optimized together – enter Hudeccan.

Josh Patterson, CEO of River Shore Steel, has a bold dream of building a LarsonMill™ and becoming the world’s first Learning Mill — one that can continuously sense, learn, and improve its processes. With a steel market that is at or near capacity, steel plants need to run at maximum efficiency to compete. Most steel mills, even the newer mini-mills built in the 80s, are run by static business rules put in place decades ago – that’s no way to do business!

SOLUTION
