“Bold Action” on Steel Imports

Our beloved Secretary of Commerce, Mr. Wilbur Ross, is now publicly discussing what we all hope is the coming protection for primary steel products in the United States and tariffs on those countries that support dumping and have heavily subsidized steel industries.

Let’s hope that castings follows along. Our industry’s own Ray Monroe testified at the 232 hearings in Washington recently, so let’s hope we get some consideration for steel castings and iron castings.

About the Author:

I am the president of a mid-size iron and steel castings company in Northeast Ohio. The foundry business is dirty, smoky, competitive, and not for the faint of heart. One must endure blistering heat, and go without seeing light for days, if not weeks or months at a time… Okay, that's a slight exaggeration. As a descendant of famed Siberian pathfinder Dmitri Zlatzutuov, I'm eager to carry on the family tradition of persevering no matter what obstacles lie ahead. Now that I'm done giving you the family history, I can tell you that I'm also an attorney and I volunteer a portion of my time to causes involving First Amendment litigation, as well as for Community Legal Services out of Akron, Ohio—for which I was recently recognized as ‘Volunteer Attorney of the Year.’ In addition to my normal day-to-day, I occasionally have works published in journals and magazines, though much less often lately, as running a company tends to fully occupy one's time.
