DMCI launches new cutting-edge steel facility
Leading construction firm D.M. Consunji Inc. has completed a P900 million state-of-the-art steel facility in Calaca, Batangas in a bid to further strengthen its position in the industry.
The plant uses technology from Peddinghaus Corp. and Voortmanteel Machinery, both globally acknowledged suppliers of innovative machine tool technology structural steel and plate fabrication.
The last known high capacity steel fabrication plant in the Philippines was put up in the 80?s.
The plant, which currently supplies the requirements of the DMCI group, has the capacity to fabricate heavy steel sections for power plants, infrastructure and steel vertical structures.
DM Consunji is in talks to with other industrial and construction companies for a possible supply contract.
?The idea to set up a steel fabrication facility came about in April 2013. We did market and business case studies for a couple of months breaking ground in November 2014,? DMCI president Jorge A. Consunji said.
?Right now, we are completing the ancillary building structures while our fabrication operations are on-going,? he added.
