Written by Ethan Bernard

JSW Steel USA has rejoined the Steel Manufacturers Association (SMA).

Additionally, JSW Steel USA CEO Rob Simon has rejoined SMA’s board of directors, SMA said in a press release on Wednesday.

He was also SMA chairman in 2011 when he served as an executive with Evraz North America. Simon was tapped as CEO for JSW Steel USA in March.

“We put a high value on SMA’s pursuit of policies that ensure the fair trade of steel and raw materials while recognizing and rewarding our efforts to decarbonize the supply chain,” Simon said in the release.

JSW Steel USA is a subsidiary of India’s JSW Steel. It operates an electric-arc furnace (EAF) steel mill in Mingo Junction, Ohio, and a plate and pipe mill in Baytown, Texas, and has ~750 employees.

“The support of JSW Steel USA puts additional force behind our efforts to promote policies that sustain, strengthen, and restore the domestic steel industry,” SMA president Philip K. Bell said.
