“Mr. Waters has an intimate knowledge of the company’s strategy, people, products, and customers. I am confident he will guide ConMet to new heights and lead exciting business development initiatives,” said Steve Smith, president and chief executive officer of Amsted Industries.
“I am excited and honored to take on this new role,” Mr. Waters said of the transition. “I look forward to working closely with colleagues and strategic partners to advance ConMet’s efforts in developing innovative solutions that support our customers and address the industry’s most critical needs.”
