Majestic Steel USA Receives Top Honors
CLEVELAND, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Majestic Steel USA has been recognized as a finalist in the Service Center of the Year category at the 2011 Awards for Steel Excellence by American Metal Market. Majestic was one of four finalists selected through an application process based on technological innovations, operational improvements, customer service initiatives and inventory.
Majestic is also being featured in the September issue of American Metals Magazine covering the best steel service centers in the United States, due out later this month.
“We are honored to be one of the top service centers in the country,” Chief Marketing Officer Stephen Chiles said. “The steel industry is at an inflection point where advances and new innovations in the way we conduct commerce and differentiate our services from one another will separate the winners from the losers. Majestic Steel USA has recognized this developing trend for some time and is committed to playing a key role in the steel world of tomorrow.”
This is the first time Majestic Steel USA has been named a finalist in this category. In the past, the company has been named as one of the fastest-growing U.S. companies by Inc. 500 magazine, a Top 100 Metal Service Center by Purchasing Magazine and a Top 50 Service Center Industry Giant by Metal Center News.
In addition to a top service center, Majestic has received recognition as a top-performing employer this year. For the fifth time in six years, Majestic claimed top honors, winning NorthCoast 99, awarded to the 99 best workplaces for top talent. And for the second consecutive year, Majestic Steel was recognized by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as a top workplace in Northeast Ohio.
“We are thrilled to be cited once again and remain committed as ever to upholding our legacy of quality and innovation,” Chiles said.
The 2011 Awards for Steel Excellence was part of AMM’s Steel Success Summit XXVI Conference, held this past June. The annual awards ceremony recognizes the most innovative companies in the steel industry. NorthCoast 99 is presented by the Employers Resource Council, Northeast Ohio’s leading and largest professional organization dedicated to human resources practices, programs and services. The Plain Dealer’s Top Workplaces list was developed and is administered by Workplace Dynamics, a partnership dedicated to helping businesses create outstanding workplaces.
