Watch a music video about Lukens Steel

From the late 1970s to 1998 the steel plant off Conshohocken Road was known as Lukens Steel. Someone at Lukens thought it would be fun to make a music video about the company and copy the California Raisins which were popular in the late 1980s. So now you have the “Conshy Raisins” and instead of “heard it through the grapevine” its “make it right the first time.” All of that is of course based on the song “I heard it through the grapevine” by Marvin Gaye.

Historically, the video is interesting because it shows every section of the plant and you get an idea of how it operated.
