Angela Phillips, President

Angela Phillips brings 15 years of operating experience in the welded steel tube industry to her role as president and CEO of Metallurgical Solutions, Inc. (MSI).  Leveraging her expertise and service as president and CEO of Middletown Tube Works, she oversees all aspects of MSI’s growth strategy and operations.

The daughter of the late Ralph H. Phillips, founder of the Ralph Phillips Family of Companies (Middletown Tube Works, Dothan Tubular Products, Inc., and Shelby Welded Tube), Angela has a broad and deep understanding of manufacturing, and what it takes to be successful in the steel components industry.

She became a member of the corporate management team in 1994, and holds the vice president position for Phillips Manufacturing Inc., (dba Shelby Welded Tube) and Dothan Tubular Products, Inc., in addition to her lead roles at MSI and Middletown Tube Works, Inc. As a key member of the corporate management team, Angela oversees plant, sales, financial and administrative functions. She has continued the company’s tradition of quality, service, flexibility and collaboration, while at the same time transforming company operations by introducing new technology and process advancements.

In 2002, she partnered with Brian Joyce, Ph.D., to launch Metallurgical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) as wholly owned subsidiary of Middletown Tube Works, Inc. Under her guidance, MSI has achieved consecutive, double digit growth each year. In 2007, MSI was formally spun off as a stand alone corporation, and Angela’s role expanded to president and CEO.  In 2008, she spearheaded MSI’s move to a new location near Middletown Tube Works, creating the area’s most state-of-the-art lab facility for metallurgical testing and failure analysis. Under Angela’s leadership, MSI acquired the assets of Blue Ash, Ohio, based Wintec, Inc. in September 2008, and gained a book of business and equipment needed to open new channels for business and to further extend its capabilities.

Angela holds B.S. degrees in political science and economics from Hiram College.
