The Alabama Iron & Steel Council (AISC) represents the interests of iron and steel producers and their supplier-vendor partner throughout the state. Reflecting the industry's growing importance, the AISC was formed in 2008 to promote and advise public officials on strategies to enhance the competitiveness of Alabama's iron and steel companies. With completion of pending and proposed facility projects, Alabama is in line to become the nation's second largest steel producing state. Alabama long has been considered the ductile iron pipe capital of the United State. The AISC affiliated with Manufacture Alabama in 2011 to expand the council's scope and effectiveness.
