Titan Steel is Quoted in The Wall Street Journal
Baltimore, MD – October 31, 2014
William Hutton, president and CFO of Titan Steel Corporation, was quoted in The Wall Street Journal for an article on the recent economic growth of the United States:
Business in the U.S. has shown “very steady, very commendable performance,” said Bill Hutton, the president of Titan Steel Corp., a Baltimore-based maker of tinplate steel used in paint, aerosol and food cans. Car sales and energy production have helped the steel industry make up for weak residential and commercial construction.
One question now is how the economy will fare if global growth sags. The 18-nation eurozone risks entering its third recession in five years, while concerns also mount about China’s slowing economy and Japan’s struggle to escape decades of stagnation.
“Europe is a tough story,” Mr. Hutton said. “But the biggest concern right now is the growth of China.” The country’s falling demand and growing steel capacity is “the sort of thing that keeps you up at night.”
