    Source Great Lakes Works in Michigan experience in the last 4 years. The steel industry has not had a great experience in the past 4 years. That said, I don’t see a really positive way forward at this point for that industry yet.

    We make powdered metal for medical, oil & gas mining, automotive & aircraft (specialty metals)... ya it sucks but I had a feeling it was gonna come to this... we were a small mill compared to our other facilities... all the company is protecting is their newest facility they built about probably 7 years ago in athens AL

    @Drake91, a government that had your back would be doing what it takes to help your company be competitive. If that means tariffing the hell out of cheaper foreign competition for a while, so be it. Instead they're going to take the money that should be spent helping American industry and fund gender studies in Pakistan :doh

    Now, I'm a free market capitalist. If your company's management made some bad business decisions like you say buying into titanium powders at the wrong time, that's on them. But if the tax payer is going to fund nonsense, the nonsense should at least be staying within our borders. IMO.

    You know why we won WWII? Our great and brave fighting men (and in some cases women), of course, but on a macro level we won because we could out produce our enemies. Do you think we could say the same thing today? I don't, and I think its a national security issue.
