Todd Olson (L) with Darrin Reed (R) at Resco

As I traveled through India on business last December, I was amazed at the opportunities that exist for companies like BOC to assist in bringing our expertise and products to their country. I truly appreciated the warm welcome I received and the extraordinary efforts of our partner in India, the Arcum Group in coordinating a schedule that enabled me to meet and talk with many of India’s steel industry leaders --- It was more than I ever expected to see in a country of that size! After visiting India, it is very apparent that they are facing many of the same challenges the United States is facing regarding the production overcapacity of both steel and aluminum by China. Earlier this year, I sent a personal letter to 4 steel industry CEO’s letting them know that BOC, as one of their major suppliers, is in their corner and committed to pushing this issue as a national conversation topic with our elected officials. Over the course of the last 4 months, we have engaged in conversations with Lt Governor Taylor’s office (OH), Senator Portman’s (OH) economic lead in Washington DC, Congressman Bill Johnson (OH-6th District), and both US Steel and AK Steel’s Federal Government Affairs liaisons. On October 17th, it was an honor for BOC to host Senator and Presidential candidate Marco Rubio. Senator Rubio addressed a capacity crowd in BOC’s lower assembly bay on his environmental policy for the United States. I was able to spend some 1 on 1 time with him and he was genuinely engaged and understood our concerns. Additionally, Congressman Bill Johnson visited BOC in November of this year and he, too, was very concerned about the economy and especially the manufacturing sector. China’s overcapacity of steel is and will continue to adversely affect small business in Ohio and nationally. This global issue that continues to go unchecked, is silently degrading the manufacturing readiness and technical ability of our country. We echo what Mario Longhi from US Steel has been saying for months that the playing field is definitely not a level one and BOC will continue our efforts in this upcoming presidential election year to make this part of the national conversation. Lastly, I would like to wish all our loyal customers and suppliers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We look forward to working with and supplying you with the most reliable, durable, eco-friendly, and American Made products in 2016! Todd Olson
