Hosted by Platts, a leading global energy, metals and commodities information provider, the annual awards program honors exemplary performance in a dozen categories spanning the entire steel, metals and mining complex. The Rising Star award recognizes the achievements of a startup business that managed to elbow into a new space in an already crowded industry which required guts, flawless execution, brilliant marketing and a tremendous organizational ability to learn fast. The winner is an organization that has been established less than 10 years ago and has shown the highest growth rate and potential. “With each year, entries for the Awards program become more competitive and winning is no small feat,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts. “We congratulate Egyptian Steel for its impressive win in the 2015 Platts Global Metals Awards.” Metals and steel industry executives from around the globe walked the red carpet into the Savoy, the site of the 2015 black-tie awards ceremony.
