A message from the Chairman:

The KDS Steel Code of Ethics for all of our Employees, managers and directors puts into writing the highest standards of ethical conduct to which we hold ourselves, and one another, accountable. Trust, one of the core values on which our company is built, is also the foundation on which we build strong relationships with our customers, owners, communities and one another. Our code provides direction on how we can achieve our business goals while preserving and building on the trust upon which our company is built. The responsibility for creating and sustaining trust in KDS Steel rests squarely on each of us and the personal integrity we bring to our work. The code, in effect, explains what we mean when we say one of our core values is “doing the right thing.” Each of us is required to acknowledge our responsibility for reading, understanding and complying with the guidelines in this document. We all recognize that results are important. Our Code of Ethics underscores our individual and collective recognition that how we achieve those results is just as important. To preserve the trust others place in us—and our trust in each other
