General Manager of Stramit Building Products, Tim Richards has been appointed to the ASI Board representing new Sustaining Member, NZ-based Fletcher Building.

ASI chief executive, Don McDonald said the move helps better bridge ASI’s trans-Tasman presence and provides keen synergies with ASI’s vision to promote steel originating from this part of the world. Fletcher Building comprises six divisions, being Distribution, Infrastructure, Laminates and Panels, Formica, Building Products and Fletcher Steel; the latter comprising Sims Pacific Steel, Pacific Steel Group and Fletcher Reinforcing in long products, EasySteel and CSP Galvanizing in steel distribution, Dimond Rollforming, Pacific Coil Coaters, and Stramit in coated products. “Fletcher’s enthusiasm to get more closely involved with the ASI also helps smooth the transition and fill the spot previously taken by former Sustaining Member, Smorgon Steel before it was acquired last year,” Mr McDonald said.
