Sicon, a solution supplier for scrap treatment and processing has hired George Bond, an experienced and recognized expert in his field, for its team.

Effective immediately, Bond will assume his position as director for business development in the Sicon team. He has many years of practical experience in the steel and scrap recycling industries and is well acquainted with both worlds and their daily challenges, knowing full well how difficult it is in today’s climate for scrap recyclers as well as for steelworks to remain competitive. The now extended team is ready to offer its customers focused support to meet these challenges.

Bond started his career in 1977 at the former Co-Steel company where he worked as meltshop metallurgist in the British plant of Sheerness Steel. After nine years in the development department, Bond was given responsibility for scrap processing. Here, he applied himself to improvement of the scrap qualities which directly lead to an increase in raw steel yield.

In 2014, Bond decided to leave the operator segment of the scrap industry and instead to develop methods of raw material preparation, a key factor for melt shop efficiency in steelworks. The result is the new concept of “Cold Steelmaking”, an innovation in this industry sector.
