Final Thoughts

Written by John Packard

I spent all day on Wednesday of this week in the Pittsburgh offices of the CRU Group. I was impressed with the people working out of Pittsburgh and was even more impressed with the size and scope of the company here in the United States and across the world. The company indexes all kinds of metals from zinc to aluminum, pig iron, scrap, iron ore to various grades of steel from around the world. CRU maintains cost models on steel production and supports a robust consulting service.

I think those of you who will be attending the SMU Steel Summit Conference this year will have an opportunity to network with a number of the CRU Group team from here in the United States, as well as a number of the management team from London, including the Executive Chairman, Robert Perlman, who will speak with me one-on-one during the last program of the conference on Wednesday afternoon. 

Both CRU and SMU will have exhibition booths set up during the conference, so we can address any questions you might have about the various products available from both companies.

I won’t go over my travel plans again, just suffice it to say that 25th of June through the 2nd of July will be quite hectic for both Diana and myself.

Due to the Fourth of July holiday, we will not publish on Tuesday, July 3rd. We will provide our flat rolled and plate price indices on Thursday, July 6th.

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

John Packard, President & CEO
