CISDI launches USA subsidiary in Steel City

CISDI has announced a further leap in its international operations with the launch of a US subsidiary.
An office has now opened in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, America’s Steel City.

CISDI chose Pittsburgh for its world-renowned metallurgy industry and its geographical importance. The centralised location of the State of Pennsylvania connects trade from east to west America.

YU Zhaohui, CEO of CISDI Group, attending the launch of the new office on October 22, detailed the operational role the Pittsburgh team would play in the company’s global operations.

“As an inside window into the American steel industry, the subsidiary is expected to utilize CISDI’s global resources to preempt the Americas’ market,” he commented.

“Its pioneering team will work in the metallurgy and infrastructure arenas, on relationships with local partners and promote to the American and NAFTA marketplace CISDI’s multi-disciplinary expertise in upgrading and modernising, along with new equipment supply to existing steelworks to make them more productive and energy-efficient.”

The subsidiary, which is based at One PPG Place in downtown Pittsburgh, is headed up by Robert Smith, CEO of CISDI USA Inc.
