What others have to say about us
We as Siemens have a more than 10-year business relationship with CRU, with experienced professionals on both sides and mutual trust, helpful in solving touchy business aspects. We take valuable inputs from CRU reports and conferences and find always experts open for a drill down discussion. Have to admit, that we could have used that opportunity much more frequently, but this is entirely our fault. CRU is not the cheapest service just around the corner but still a cornerstone in our market research portfolio.
Head of Supply Market Intelligence
Our customers prefer using a price index as it provides a level of transparency and certainty.
We use CRU’s steel prices contractually to buy and sell steel sheet products which helps us mitigate our risk.
