Steel Industry Integrators

Sequence Technologies, Inc. was co-founded in 2001 by John Williams and Rick Boudah, both steel industry veterans who share over 50 years of combined experience in the field. Since 2001 the US Steel Industry has “right-sized” and the need for small engineering firms to develop and integrate measurement and control technology has grown to fulfill projects formerly handled by in-house staff.


All of the solutions offered by Sequence Technologies are customer-centric in implementation. We present all concepts in 3D software models (Solidworks) so the customer can see how the solution will function when built. By doing this, revisions can be made on the computer rather than after the fact – saving the customer time and money.


From mechanical and electrical design and fabrication to custom software, Sequence Technologies’ engineers deliver turn-key solutions for steel mill customers. We produce interactive software using industry standard computer programming, such as C++, Visual Basic and PLC code to record, graphically display, trend and save vital information from the latest high-tech sensors. Our control systems are designed to transmit measurement information to PC's which can be linked to today's popular PLC brands, such as Allen Bradley or Siemens.


John Williams

Prior to founding Sequence Technologies, Mr. Williams began his career at LTV Steel in Cleveland, OH. For nearly eight years, he was responsible for leading the mill's Continuous Casting Maintenance Department in optimizing equipment utilization. In this role, he implementing predictive maintenance and process control programs. He later took on additional operations and management responsibilities in the Steel Producing Department. Mr. Williams left LTV in 1997 to work with Mr. Boudah at a small engineering firm where he was a sales and service engineer. Mr. Williams holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Akron and an MBA from Baldwin Wallace College.


Rick Boudah

Mr. Boudah gained extensive product development and maintenance experience in steelmaking and continuous casting processes at Algoma Steel, where he began his career. Later, he served as lead engineer at two firms and developed new sensor-based applications expertise for process and measurement control systems in the steel industry. Mr. Boudah is also credited with the enhancement of two key steel industry products, the mold thermal mapping system and the hydraulic mold oscillation system. Mr. Boudah holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Lake Superior State University.
