GERDAU METALDOM INAUGURATES NEW STEEL CUTTING AND SHAPING PLANT

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic..- Gerdau Metaldom inaugurated its new cutting and shaping plant for steel rods destined for construction, located in the Duarte Industrial Park.

The executive chairman of Metaldom, Carlos Valiente, informed that this new unit will host the capacity to supply the market needs in the Dominican Republic and all of Central America and the Caribbean, which is their current export market.

“We are convinced that with this new cutting plant, we are contributing towards a more solid and competitive construction sector, guaranteeing the required quality levels demanded by our regulating agents and international performance standards”, Valiente said.

Valiente explained that the cutting and shaping offers the special feature that the client/buyer receives the rods ready to insert in the construction, with all bends and required lengths already made, hence reducing the execution and completion time for the work, and at the same time increasing the safety of the workers, given that this way they don’t need to bend or cut the steel on site, therefore everything comes ready to use.

This investment emerges as a direct result of the strategy by Gerdau Metaldom to become the No. 1 multinational steel company in Central America and the Caribbean, where it currently exports to over 30 countries around the region.
