On September 18th we hosted an Open House in Stoney Creek showcasing our new Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) slitting line. This new line is capable of processing any and all of the most advanced high strength steels made today. The weather cooperated and a perfect fall afternoon allowed us to welcome almost 500 suppliers and customers throughout the day. We are very appreciative of both the interest shown in our equipment and facilities and the praise we received regarding the professionalism and knowledge of our employees. Our commitment to leading edge technology and strong employee leadership and participation are two things in which we take great pride.

For those of you who came, we thank you very much for your continued interest in our company.

For those of you who couldn't make it, we'd still love to show you around. Give us a call and we'll organize a tour for you.
