SMU Community Chat with James Banker of NLMK USA

Guests: James Banker

On Wednesday, June 10, we will host our next SMU Community Chat webinar with our guest speaker James Banker, Jr., Executive Vice President of NLMK USA.

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.

Banker is well known to the SMU community as one of the key executives at NLMK USA. The NLMK steel mills produce hot rolled coils from scrap in their Portage, Ind., minimill. They have two mills in Pennsylvania, one which rolls hot rolled and cold rolled steels out of slabs, and the second is the former Winner Steel (which SMU President & CEO John Packard used to represent), now called NLMK Sharon Coatings, a galvanized coil producer.

NLMK USA is in a unique position to be both a producer of American made steel, and a reroller of slabs coming from foreign and domestic steel suppliers.

The NLMK USA operations have been impacted by the Section 232 tariffs and quotas on slabs.

At the same time, they are a domestic producer of hot rolled, cold rolled and coated steels and therefore have an excellent view of the current market situation.

Come join us at 11 AM ET (10 CT, 9 MT, 8 PT) this Wednesday.
