In the North American steel industry, SMDI members are leaders and innovators. The companies that invest in our programs are using that investment as a catalyst for change to advance steel's competitive edge. From powertrains, chassis and suspension systems to continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP), reinforced concrete railroad ties, and wire rod and fastener technology, SMDI's Long Products Market Development Group (LPMDG) is making steel the material of choice for ground vehicle, construction and other broad-based markets. Through research and development of new product and process technologies, the LPMDG works in partnership with customer groups to develop pre-competitive solutions to meet market challenges.
