Gaining a Procurement Advantage: How ATI is Building a Future-Ready Procurement Team with ISM 

ATI Inc. is a leading global specialty materials producer specializing in manufacturing high-performance materials and advanced alloys. With more than 6,000 employees across nearly 20 locations in Europe and Asia, and more than 30 in the United States, ATI provides high performance materials and solutions for the global aerospace and defense markets, and critical applications in electronics, medical and specialty energy. 

The ISM Corporate Program has been a valuable resource for ATI in developing its procurement organization. ATI continues to leverage the membership benefits to strengthen its procurement team. Mike McCaig, CPO at ATI, plans to see the number of people with ISM certifications increase in the Pittsburgh, Dallas and other Metro areas where ATI is located so the network continues to grow. He also recommends ISM Assessments, especially for organizations looking to establish a benchmark and develop their maturity level in procurement.
