ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the issue regarding the steel distribution in the U.S. and Great Britain. He asserts that America's system of independent distribution makes much more sense, whereas Brits see a market dominated by independent service centers as strange. He observes that mill ownership of service centers is a growing trend in Great Britain and other parts of Europe, and explains the dominant market position of Corus Group PLC.
