The Elements You Depend On

At MSCI, we are honored to support service centers and producers in a metals materials industry that literally makes modern life possible. Every day our members incorporate the science, engineering, art and business skills necessary to process and distribute raw materials and finished metal forms. Their products are used by today’s manufacturers to support every industry, from transportation and defense to communications and energy production.

A Storied Tradition

For more than 100 years, our members have been at the core of North America’s manufacturing sector, initially acquiring bundles of metal from mills or other merchants, unbundling the sheets, plates, bars, tubes and scrap and selling smaller quantities to fabricators who could be reached within range of a horse drawn cart. Now greater productivity and efficiency and global economic challenges are transforming service centers into high-tech, internationally competitive companies supporting modern manufacturing.
