Siderperu and Grupo Ferralia have bolstered their industrial cooperation by consolidating the operations and processing of Enabled Iron or Fierro Habilitado (FEHAB) in one plant. This move improves the company’s operational and logistical efficiencies.
The shift capitalizes on Ferralia’s expertise in the manufacture of FEHAB, triples the total annual capacity at Siderperu, and improves the product to market response time. Siderperu has an annual crude steel capacity of 750,000mt. The exact segment of annual production that would increase for FEHAB was not identified by the company. Ferralia’s Lurin plant will also play a role in the production process.
Pedro Mercado, commercial manager at Siderperu, noted that both brands will strengthen their positions in the construction sector and expand product portfolios in the new alliance.
The partnership is expected to reduce the cost of end projects and improve the efficiency of project installations. Siderperu will be in charge of generating detailed engineering plans and will also make engineering design BIM model technology available to construction companies.
Earlier in July, Siderperu announced a strategic alliance with NLMK to expand product offerings and market access with a focus on structural steel plates.
