The profits made by the Edgar Thomson Steel Works were enough to let Carnegie and his partners, including Henry Clay Frick, his brother Thomas M. Carnegie, his cousin George Lauder, and Henry Phipps Jr., to buy other nearby steel mills. These included the Homestead Steel Works which Carnegie acquired in 1883. The presence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers provided transport for the heavy materials associated with steel-making. Each plant was nearby or alongside a river.
Carnegie agreed to Frick's subsequent proposal that the various plants and assets be consolidated into one company. This consolidation occurred on July 1, 1892 with the formation of the Carnegie Steel Company.
