The expansion and placement of product suite is essential to our strategic imperative to build scale through diversification.
While we are uniquely positioned as the largest supplier of pellets to U.S.-based blast furnaces, our operations in Eastern Canada and Australia are positioned to supply the growing Asian customer base.
Managing Global Challenges and Opportunities
We have realigned sales and marketing management responsibilities from a regional approach to a global structure, allowing us to manage the challenges and opportunities that arise from serving several customers in multiple markets.
In addition, by utilizing a global commercial structure, we are able to enhance our customer service to existing customers and refine our sophistication in targeting new customers.
Unlocking Value Through Logistics
We also recognize the importance of logistics in our business. Premium assets in close proximity to well-capitalized infrastructure are becoming a phenomenon of the past.
Today, investments in complex-infrastructure-logistic networks are growing as premium-mining districts are being developed further inland. We believe the infrastructure component within the mining industry will be the key to unlocking future value for our stakeholders.
