YTD imports of hot- and cold-rolled steel are down 20 percent from 2004, “further testament for the need of increased steel imports for U.S. steel consumers to more easily obtain the steel they need at globally competitive prices,” says William E. Gaskin, president of the Precision Metalforming Association.
