High-growth leader in technology and innovation
April 20, 2013
Prodac, a leader in the market to manufacture and commercialize wire products and derivatives, and its strategic partner, Bekaert, a global leader in providing innovative solutions to transform steel products, officially presented the revolutionary Dramix 4D and 5D steel fiber solution to the Peruvian market as part of a simultaneous project launch in Latin America.
Over the last 15 years, and thanks to Dramix® fiber’s performance and versatility, the market has been highly receptive to applications for tunneling at infrastructure and mining projects; floor slabs for ground areas; and applications for secondary roads. New Dramix® 4D and 5D fibers are part of a wide range of applications for structural floors, floors on piles, foundations for supporting rack constructions and other structural applications that are in high demand.
The host of the product’s launching was Mr. Fernando Muñoz, Central Manager of the Mining Unit at Prodac. Mr. Muñoz commented that the unit serves 90% of the country’s mines, including: Volcan, Pan American Silver, Marsa, Buenaventura, Simsa, Poderosa, etc. This success was due to the unit’s dedication to accompany its clients by providing on-going technical assistance and training throughout all stages of the process.
Prodac-Bekaert’s productive capacity is 150,000 tons. Its products are available in all the country’s markets given that the company investment US$25 million in a large-scale expansion effort last December.
