WE DO THE COMMON, UNCOMMONLY WELL
Hot rolled steel is the most common product sourced by FGM but that does not mean we go about it like everyone else. We believe market dynamics determine the role of domestic and international suppliers. We trust in our knowledge of customers’ needs to buy earlier than others, using hedging to obtain pricing certainty. And then we create supply chains based on optionality to deliver supply certainty.
THE PROOF IS IN OUR NUMBERS
- growth in hot rolled volume over the last year
- hot rolled tons shipped in 2021
- mills supplied FGM customers in 2021
- processors serviced FGM customers in 2021
At FGM, our supply chains are engineered assemblages of reliable, tested, vetted vendors with contingencies and options designed from the onset to limit downsides. Our geographic-agnostic model means together we select the right partners for you based on capabilities, not location.
What it takes to become a FGM approved mill or processor:
- In-person visit, no matter where the vendor is on the globe
- Quality team audit
- Operations review
SPECIFIC MARKET SEGMENTS WITH A DIVERSE PRODUCT MIX
We don’t want to be everything to every steel buyer, especially when it comes to hot rolled. We have crafted very specific market segments who rely on FGM. We also have established a reputation with domestic and international mills who know FGM is a top company with a robust balance sheet. Those two factors combine to allow us to secure supply certainty for larger buyers while aggregating tonnage for our smaller customers.
