- Teck Resources Limited Makes Infrastructure Modernization a Reality
July 2, 2018
Nearly every industry including energy, construction, transportation and equipment manufacturing requires steel—a material dependent on both metallurgical coal and iron ore for its production. Steel is essential for supporting critical infrastructure projects and creating products that make our quality of life possible.
Founded in 1913, Teck Resources Limited is leading the way in responsible mining and mineral development with business units focused on copper, zinc, steelmaking coal and energy.
Teck has grown into one of the world’s leading diversified natural resource companies. In 2017, the company produced 26.6 million tons of steelmaking coal, making it the world’s second-largest seaborne exporter of steelmaking coal, with six operations in Western Canada.
Teck’s steelmaking coal is an essential ingredient in the production of steel which is critical to the construction of essential infrastructure, such as railways, bridges and highways. Steel and the coal used to make it can be found in everything from advanced energy projects like wind turbines and solar panels to transportation options like mass transit subway systems buses or hybrid vehicles.
As the nation looks to reinvest and rebuild our infrastructure, timely access to a reliable and well-sourced domestic supply chain of the materials needed for construction will be essential. That’s why companies like Teck are working hard every day to supply the copper, zinc and steelmaking coal to make this infrastructure modernization a reality.
