I will go with B. "as" can be replaced with "because" without changing the meaning of the sentence. Debated with C, but then the sentence should have read

tough one.

Will go with B.

I think "that is necessary to introduce the dependent clause. I almost went with C, because I thought it sounded better. But "as" is better to show examples, as is the case with Bethlehem Steel in the STeel industry.
