Final Thoughts

Written by John Packard

Earlier today, I spoke to the RIPA/IPANA annual meeting about the steel industry, AD/CVD duties, Section 232 tariffs and a number of our proprietary products. No one fell asleep, which is always a good sign.

I will be back in the office on Friday morning, and with the exception of one quick trip to CRU offices in Pittsburgh, I will remain in my office through the month of November. You will be able to reach me at 772-245-8630 or by email:

Note that we are in the process of moving our 800 number to Paige Mayhair in our Pittsburgh office. Paige is handling all customer service and renewal questions. You can reach Paige at 724-720-1012.

We changed the date of our first 2019 Steel 101 workshop, moving it up to Jan. 29-30. The workshop will be held in Starkville, Miss., and will include a tour of the SDI Columbus steel mill. Registration is now open, and you can find details on our website:

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

John Packard, President & CEO
