A Message from Barry Zekelman
In this Q&A, CEO Barry Zekelman shares his insights on why domestic manufacturing is important for families and communities. Hear his personal story of building his career in manufacturing, the current state of the steel industry, and how you can show your support.

Too many steel imports are being dumped in America and sold at below-market rates.
