1. How’s business?
It’s definitely keeping us busy, especially with the ongoing challenges our industry faces. We’re seeing a lot of growth in the more advanced end of the market and introducing lots of exciting new products to meet that demand.

2. What is your view of the current state of the global steel industry?
The steel industry is facing challenges from the macro-economic situation. The ongoing trade situation between China and the US is causing uncertainty. It put the US market in a strong position, but we’ll see for how long. Overall, the more traditional parts of the market seem to be holding their own with the strongest growth coming from the higher-strength areas. Overall, I feel very optimistic.
