Base & Specialty Metals Industry Leadership Award

Open to all companies active in base, minor and specialty metals, such as copper, zinc, tin, nickel, lead, molybdenum, ferroalloys, light metals (including silicon, lithium and magnesium), stainless and tool steel.

After underperforming relative to their fundamentals, many of the base metals prices hit multi-year highs in 2017, boosted by better demand, supply reductions and speculative interest. Some of the minor and specialty metals also benefited from increased demand but saw a more mixed pricing trend. This award recognizes companies that properly managed the volatility, competitive pressures and supply constraints. Award-worthy companies will have tailored output or investment toward growth areas and taken steps to improve efficiency, ensure raw material supply and protect against risk. Judges will identify companies that made the right decisions reacting to fundamentals, price potential, growth prospects and diversity in preparation for opportunities ahead.

Judges will focus exclusively on performance and achievements since January 2017.
