Message from the President
In a time of dramatic change for the global steel industry, SinterMet has moved aggressively to strengthen the company’s position as an industry leader by improving its productivity and competitiveness.
We’ve steadfastly held to our corporate vision, our strategic plan, and our commitment to our customers, focusing on delivering innovative products to meet global needs and requirements. We have continued to implement a good solid business strategy, growing our value-added production capabilities, expanding our global business platform, and keeping costs in check.
Looking back at 2003, several events stand out as key in helping to position SinterMet for the future. Most notable is that the company converted from ISO9002 to ISO 9001–2000 status by qualifying against eight quality management principles: customer focus; involvement of people; process approach; system approach to management; continual improvement; factual approach to decision-making; mutually beneficial supplier relationships; and leadership.
In addition, we have made significant improvements to our manufacturing process to ensure our competitiveness and quality levels.
As always, we have remained dedicated to our four main business objectives:
We understand that our customers require zero defects in our products in order to maintain the necessary throughput in their rolling mills. We are ISO 9001 - 2008 certified and will continue our diligence in this area to ensure uncompromising quality.
With the increasing need for steel production and service, we’ve aggressively stepped up our product development efforts and implemented new grades. Our attractively priced Shur-Clad composite roll, applicable to the production of a variety of bar and rod shapes and sizes, is attracting attention as a way for mills to migrate to SinterMet’s optimum Shur-Lock composite roll. Meanwhile, SMETiC 2000 guide rolls are gaining in popularity among our customer base.
Continuous improvements to our manufacturing process have been and will remain the key to our maintaining the operational excellence necessary to compete in the global marketplace.
It takes the vision of our leadership team and the participation and commitment of our entire staff to continue to grow our share of the world market. We’re fortunate to rely on a strong group of individuals who are working harder than ever to satisfy our customers’ needs.
We’ll never compromise the level of customer service to which our customers have become accustomed. As always, we’ll continue to provide on-time deliveries and post-sales service.
The U.S. economy is improving, and steel demand is as well. SinterMet is prepared to support this increased level of activity, as well as the continued demands of our international customers.
SinterMet is enthusiastic about our future as the world’s leading supplier of rolls for the long products industry. Our unique combination of products and services, which are offered to a global marketplace by an internationally recognized company, puts us in a position for growth in the coming years.
