Zekelman Industries Announces Key Leadership Appointments

It is with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of Tom Muth to the role of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Tubular Products Division of Zekelman Industries.

Tom has over 30 years of experience in the pipe and tube industry. He began his career with Copperweld Corporation and joined Atlas Tube in 2005 as Vice President of Sales, Atlas USA. Tom was promoted to President of Atlas in March of 2013. He has been instrumental in the success of Atlas Tube, leading expansions, acquisitions and industry changing e-commerce initiatives. Under his guidance, Atlas Tube has propelled itself to the leading manufacturer of HSS in North America.

In his new role, Tom will continue to report directly to me and will oversee our newly created Tubular Products Division which will include the businesses of Wheatland Tube, Western Tube, Atlas Tube, Picoma, and Sharon Tube. Together these business units produce over 2.2 million tons of tubular products annually, including HSS, conduit, electrical fittings, fence framework, pipe, couplings, OCTG, API line pipe, pipe piles and DOM tubing.

I am also very pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Cole to the role of President, Atlas Tube. Jeff has spent his entire career with Atlas Tube, joining us immediately after college in 1993. Most recently, Jeff served as the Vice President of Operations, overseeing all of our HSS plants across North America. Jeff began his career on the shop floor, operating all aspects of tube production, and has since led Atlas operations through our many expansions and shop floor technology initiatives, driving achievement of industry leading key production metrics.

We are proud to have Jeff leading the Atlas Tube team. Jeff will report directly to Tom Muth.
