“Our winners, together with all the finalists, have shown excellence in each of the award categories. It was clear in each case that the beneficiary of their outstanding efforts were their customers across the steel supply chain, ultimately contributing to the vibrancy and sustainability of the global steel industry,” Fastmarkets CEO Raju Daswani said. The winners will be profiled in the July/August issue of Metal Market Magazine.
