Competitive Advantage

  • We are backed by the most competitive and dynamic domestic market in the world for steel raw material and skilled work force.
  • Steel raw material cost makes for 50-60% of the total cost for fabricated steel structures.
  • China is the largest producer and consumer of steel in the world. It produces and consumes over 50% of the world’s steel.
  • The supply far exceeds demand for products like HR Plates, H-Beams and sections, allowing fabricators access to one of the cheapest steel prices of all times.
  • Large fabrication capacities in China were established during the last decade as a result of which per ton fixed costs are the lowest in the world.
  • The Chinese fabricators have powered and continue to power Chinese infrastructure growth over the last 15 years, which has made many of the top fabricators world class in quality and execution.
  • We take advantage of arbitrage through competitive imports.
  • Regular tracking of international and China steel prices enables us to tap price advantages at the right time from China Index based pricing.
