Price Risk Management


Semco realizes that to protect themselves from price volatility, they need to protect their customers' risk exposure. This is why Semco uses real time pricing. Semco is connected to an up to the second live price screen. In correlation to live pricing, Semco has direct contact with London Metal Exchange (LME) brokers that in addition to giving real time zinc prices, can give analysis, forecasts and running commentary. The last venue but maybe the most crucial to managing risk exposure is providing customers with hedging strategies. Semco will work with each individual customer to create a strategy that is appropriate for their business.

Remelt


Semco will take the zinc die cast parts and dross in an ingot form, remelt the material and cast it back into an ingot with the proper chemical specification for that particular zinc alloy. There are many advantages to remelting the material. The customer receives their material back in usable solid ingot form, the material has an accurate analysis for each bundle, and these ingots can be used in a quality manner which will prevent out of specification castings and metal loss.
