Historically, Dearborn is known as a major automotive manufacturer as well as an industrial center for steel processing. An integral part of Henry Ford’s River Rouge automobile complex is Severstal Dearborn (formerly Rouge Industries with the steel operations trading as Rouge Steel Company), which has been in the steel manufacturing business since the early 1920s. The Rouge complex, originally part of the Ford Motor Company, was created as an integrated manufacturing plant to produce all major vehicle components at one large facility. Severstal Dearborn remains a critical and valued supplier to the automotive industry while expanding to serve other markets as well.

Dearborn’s diverse history of manufacturing, particularly within the steel and automobile industries, makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers.
