New American Steel Coalition Supports U.S. Manufacturing
The American Steel Coalition, a recently reactivated grassroots alliance of suppliers, customers and individuals who support the domestic steel industry, is looking for new members.
Coalition Chairman Michael Romano, vice president of strategic accounts for the Naperville, Ill.-based Nalco Co., says ASC will bring together members from across the country, who agree that a strong independent steel industry is vital to the nation's prosperity and national security. “ASC will be a strong voice in advocating for policies that strengthen the global competitiveness of the American steel industry and the overall U.S. manufacturing sector.”
So far, eight companies/individuals have joined Romano in the American Steel Coalition's Founders Circle, contributing seed money to develop a website and begin recruiting members. Founders Circle members include: James R. Boughton, SES, LLC; Charles Connors, Sr., Magneco/Metrel Inc.; Kevin Fenton, GrafTech International; Steve Harker, Kvaerner North American Construction; George Koenig, Berry Metals Co.; Robert Kuball, Heraeus Electro-Nite Co. LLC; William Rackoff, ASKO, Inc.; and Joe Turner, Shaw Plant Services.
