On Wednesday, June 17, we will host our next SMU Community Chat webinar with our guest speaker Donald Bly, managing director of Applied Value.
As with every SMU Community Chat webinar, this is free to the public. Feel free to invite others from your company as well as your suppliers and customers. Click here to register.
Applied Value works on the buy side of the industry. We anticipate discussing the overall industry perspectives on production, consumption and pricing. We will cover the current negotiation situation with steel mills and service centers with end users. We will also cover what manufacturing companies (OEMs) are doing to cover supply issues and managing any shortages. Applied Value will discuss with SMU how OEMs are revaluing their supply chains and managing risks by reshoring parts back to North America.
Come join us at 11 AM ET (10 CT, 9 MT, 8 PT) this Wednesday. To register please click here or go to: www.SteelMarketUpdate.com/blog/smu-community-chat-webinars
