SSINA strongly supports efforts to secure global supply chains and prevent future strategic vulnerabilities.
SSINA appreciates recent efforts undertaken by the administration and Congress to ensure adequate current and future domestic supplies of minerals deemed vital to our national security and economic prosperity. Specialty metals producers are heavily reliant upon a variety of mineral commodities for the production of stainless steel and other alloys. The innovative, strategic materials produced by SSINA member companies are vital to the nation’s evolving defense industrial base, as well as to other critical sectors of our economy. Recognizing these strategic applications, we strongly support efforts to secure global supply chains and prevent future strategic vulnerabilities.
