Global Steel Consortium Partners With Phoenix For Technical Engineering Expertise
WorldAutoSteel, the automotive group of the World Steel Association, is comprised of 21 major global steel producers supplying the automotive industry from around the world. Their mission is to advance and communicate steel’s unique ability to meet the automotive industry’s needs and challenges in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way. WorldAutoSteel aims to provide highly visible representation for steel companies throughout the world.
WorldAutoSteel’s member companies are some of the most prestigious companies in the global steel industry, represented by the world’s most prominent thought leaders on the subject. The Consortium is led by a lean and flexible Program Office. Beyond capitalizing on the office and immense acumen of the individual members, WorldAutoSteel calls upon external contractors to perform management and engineering activities. Hence, they are continuously looking to attract and engage with technical engineering experts to help drive their cause forward.
One of the expertise fields that WorldAutoSteel contracts for is the build up of their automotive application expertise and project management skills. They turned to the technical engineering experts at The Phoenix Group to strengthen those focus areas.
