Farewell to ‘The Chief’

MikeD-headshot

From the Publisher - My Dad started his 62-year publishing career with Steel magazine at Penton Publishing in 1954.

A curse removed

MikeD-headshot

From the Publisher - My father, Bill, was born and raised in Cleveland and I was a student there from kindergarten through eighth grade. While my father watched the Browns collect four NFL titles from 1950 to 1964, and saw the Indians’ last World Series championship in 1948, I only knew athletic heartbreak.

Surging ahead

Editorial: On April 26, U.S. Steel Corp. filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission (ITC) to launch an investigation under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 against the largest Chinese steel producers and their distributors.

Bottoms up

Editorial: Steelmakers and distributors indicate they expect to see some improvement in revenues during second quarter compared with the previous three quarters, given that steel prices have rebounded off the bottom, following the upward trajectory of scrap pricing.

Falling behind

Editorial: More than 80 percent of surveyed voters agree the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs overseas and the damage to the American steel industry as a result of unfairly traded imports are very important issues facing the country.

From the top

Editorial: The United States, the president said, is “best positioned” to take advantage of the global marketplace, with the most innovative entrepreneurs, the best technology and the best workforce.

Oracle of Peoria

Editorial: Caterpillar Inc. is one of the largest individual purchasers of metal products in North America and sources around the world for steel plate, sheet, tubing, special sections, special-bar quality, forgings and castings, rings, fasteners, aluminum alloys, magnesium, etc. For many metals suppliers, Cat is a top customer.

Wish list

Editorial: Instead of resolutions I know I have a scant chance of keeping, I thought I would draft a wish list for the new year.

Cycling through

Editorial: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

A colossus reborn?

Editorial: In her poem, “New Colossus,” Emma Lazarus describes our Statue of Liberty as the Mother of Exiles. Manufacturers, “tempest tossed” by the vagaries of the international marketplace, are rediscovering the New World as arguably the smartest place to produce durable goods.
