Our steel market survey continues with invitations out to approximately 689 companies. We will send a reminder to those who have not yet responded at approximately 8 AM ET on Wednesday morning. SMU will continue to collect responses until 3 PM ET on Thursday and will begin reporting our findings in Thursday evening’s issue of Steel Market Update newsletter.
Those who complete our survey receive a link to a Power Point presentation of the survey results which include comparisons to prior surveys as well as responses which are not presented in our newsletter.
If you would like to be included in our survey we require that you be an active participant in the flat rolled steel industry in a sales, purchasing or management capacity. You should have knowledge of the decision-making process regarding inventory management, pricing, etc. If you qualify and you would like to be added to our survey invitee list you can request an invitation by contacting me at: John@SteelMarketUpdate.com
As always your business is truly appreciated.
