Our 8th SMU Steel Summit Conference registrations are quickly approaching 300 executives. With 136 days still to go, we are confident we will set another record attendance. Over the past two days we have received registrations from the following companies (those with a * next to their name means there is more than one person attending from their company): Overhead Door*, Nucor*, Ryerson*, Wabash National, Honda of America*, Acuity Brands Lighting, Klauer Manufacturing, Mainline Metals*, Berlin Metals*, Leeco Steel* and West Coast Metals*.

You can join those and the hundreds of other companies who will be attending this year’s conference in Atlanta on Aug. 27-29, 2018, by going to to register. You can also contact our offices at 772-932-7538. If you have questions, you can email them to

Late this afternoon, UPI told their customers that their July order book is now closed.

It’s been a busy week and there is still another day to go…

As always, your business is truly appreciated by all of us here at Steel Market Update.
