Gerdau's fabricated reinforcing steel facilities improve their customer service

Press release

Gerdau held a survey in 2012 with more than 500 civil construction technicians in Brazil to understand fabricated reinforcing steel market needs. As a result it adopted new technologies and internal processes, set up monitoring systems to increase the predictability of deliveries, and also trained sales teams for giving technical support to contractors. These new practices will be applied in Gerdau's more than 100 fabricated reinforcing steel facilities around the world.
The cutting and bending system makes it possible to deliver the steel in quantities, shapes, and sizes according to the demands of each project and can increase productivity by up to 70% in the structure assembly stage at the jobsite.
