About Metals Service Center Institute
The Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI) is a trade association that supports and represents the broadest representation of the metals value chain, including metals producers, distributors, and processors and, to a lesser extent, the interests of metals users. Because its primary membership consists of metals service centers—businesses that inventory and distribute metals for industrial customers and perform first stage processing—MSCI is ideally situated to identify and respond to the networking, educational, public policy, and research needs of the entire metals community, and not just a narrow portion of it.
Founded in 1909, the Metals Service Center Institute is a nonprofit association based in Rolling Meadows, Ill., serving the industrial metals supply chain. It serves more than 230 member companies in more than 2,200 locations throughout North America. For more information, visit the MSCI website. MSCI is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 and 501(c)3 trade association.
