“Materials Market Digest” Now Available to ALL Members

It's only a year old, and already the “Materials Market Digest,” authored by industry icon Ed Scott, Jr., is already a household name among the Vendor Members and Industrial Piping Division members of ASA.

The “Digest,” is a monthly e-letter that provides key insights on the volatile raw materials markets, in a way that only a respected and savvy industry expert like Ed Scott can offer. In this electronic newsletter, Scott talks about supply, demand and price trends of raw materials, such as carbon steel, ferrous scrap, stainless, nickel, copper and brass, and various resins. He also offers his keen observations on other areas of timely interest.

The “Digest,” is a service sponsored by the Vendor Member Division of ASA, and effective last month, was made available to ALL ASA members. A mailing of February's issue was conducted in order to solicit email addresses, since subsequent issues of the “Digest” will only be available via email. If you are an ASA member and would like to receive the “Digest,” contact Ladelia Berger at ASA at 312-464-0090 or email lberger@asa.net.
