Firm urge builders, engineers to embrace local steel products
An indigenous firm, Premium Steel and Mines Limited (PSML) has urged builders and engineers to use local steel products that are manufactured to international standards.
The PSML Chief Executive Officer, Prasanta Mishra made this plea at the presentation of some finished products of the one million tons per annum rolling mill to a group of businessmen who visited the Ovwian-Aladja Delta State-based factory.
Commissioned a year ago, the PSML state-of-the-art equipment plant was re-built by the Austro-German Consortium to produce competitive market products for the construction industry.
PSML currently ranks amongst Nigeria’s foremost suppliers of certified steel products to ongoing national projects including railway, refineries, bridges, flyovers, malls, and high-rise buildings, the company’s helmsman affirmed.
He urged the professionals in the country to embrace and use locally manufactured steel bars for their construction works, adding that the products compare with similar imports from Europe and China. He said: “Only buildings and structures constructed with certified quality steel and casting products can withstand the devastating impacts of shocks and quakes.”
Amid increased rate of collapse of buildings in the country, Mr. Mishra said PSML is ready to meet customers’ demand for quality steel. Other SON (Standards Organization of Nigeria) certified products such as reinforcement Premium re-bars that are produced at the factory were also showcased during the excursion.
Mr. Mishra said that the steel products are manufactured at the company’s newly groomed 18-stand rolling mill and tailored to meet the evolving needs of Nigeria’s building and construction industry.
“We are continuously transforming to be a future-ready organization that could meet the growing challenges of modernization, re-invention and restructuring,” Mr. Mishra added.
According to him, PSML is conscious of the evolving needs of the construction industry. “We will continue to invest in new technologies, state-of-the-art equipment as well as R&D (research and development) to meet the growing demand of the construction industry for quality steel and casting products,” he added.
In a remark, PSML Head of Sales and Marketing, Ujjwal Sinha said: “Our products are accessible in all markets across the country and are competitively priced to cater to all categories of customers, just as we offer the best applications to forestall building collapse and undue threats.”
