January 2015 is already upon us, and March is just weeks away! This year, REA JET is proud to be attending the AMM (American Metal Market) 8th Steel Tube and Pipe conference. As a supplier of reliable coding and marking technologies for steel tubes, steel profiles, aluminum plates, seamless steel pipes, construction profiles and other steel/metal components, we thought it would be great to attend the conference and network with other companies in the industry, as well as meet new people. It’s also important to keep up with the latest trends, innovations, and news in the markets we service.
This year, we felt it particularly important to attend following the trade case that ruled in favor of domestic producers. Increasing prices should provide the U.S. market a healthy boost. According to Energy Transfer Partners Senior Director of Procurement Perry Roberts, those who want to have a good understanding of the steel tube and pipe market should not miss this event.
Some of the discussions attendees can expect to enjoy include not only the trade case, but raw material costs, the dynamics of supply and demand, end user perspective, and shale play prospects. The AMM Steel Tube & Pipe Conference is, according to the website, the “ideal forum to assess the impact on producers of Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) and line pipe in the U.S. and across the world.”
With countless exhibitors expected and more than 400 attendees, 2015 should be the most successful year yet for the conference. Logistics, market drivers, the view on oil and gas, production and demand are just a few of the sessions those in attendance won’t want to miss.
REA JET is excited about being a gold sponsor, and invites everyone in the steel pipe and tube industry to come join us at this year’s event! This will be a great opportunity to network, learn, and explore. Come see us!
