This group has a special interest in the galvanized steel business and serves as the industry resource for trends via monthly calls, white papers, and trade publications. The council conducts periodic conference calls which serve as an informational forum for anyone with interest in steel. Discussions focus on mill operations, inventory strategies, marketing trends, etc.

Sometimes HARDI’s Sheet Metal & Air Handling team needs the assistance of HARDI Council members. We ask that all of HARDI’s Council members make it a priority to contribute when these issues arise.
