After being in the steel mill industry for almost 7 years, I have come across many positive and negative experiences regarding the conservation of lubricants. With that, I have come up with five common practices that if all performed to excellence, can provide a cost savings for steel mills.
The steel industry is an integral part of our everyday lives. From our cars and transportation to bridge beams and infrastructure, we can’t deny our world revolves around steel.

Our recent focus on WBENC and supplier diversity presented us with an excellent opportunity to interview Cheryl Elafi of Diverse Supply Chain Partner, LLC about her role in bringing diverse suppliers and companies together to form valuable partnerships.
