About Us

The Specialty Steel Industry of North America (SSINA) is a voluntary trade association representing the majority of the producers of specialty metals in North America. Our members produce a variety of products including semi-finished, bar, rod, wire, angles, plate, sheet and strip, in stainless steel and other high performance materials.

Established in 1963 and funded by SSINA members and sponsors, the association is the voice of the North American specialty metals industry. SSINA promotes sound public policies to ensure a healthy and vibrant industry and works to expand the recognition and use of specialty metals in North America. The association also serves as a critical data and information resource for its membership and the public at large.





The purpose of SSINA is to promote and encourage better understanding between members of the specialty steel industry and national and state government officials; to provide and encourage governmental action in support of the continued growth of a strong specialty metals industry within the United States, Canada, and Mexico; to prepare and disseminate information concerning the manufacture and distribution of the products of the industry to the public and government officials and agencies; to do all other things necessary and proper under the circumstances to further these stated purposes.
