PIONEERING flat steel products manufacturer Philsteel recently launched four new websites; one for its holdings company and three for its manufacturing companies.
The new sites are available at the following URLs:
Philsteel Holdings Corporation: www.philsteelgroup.com
Philmetal Products, Inc.: www.philmetal.com.ph
Premier Shelter Products, Inc.: www.premiershelter.com.ph
Steel Corporation of the Philippines: www.steelcorp.com.ph
With these new websites, customers and partners in the construction industry will have access to more information about the companies, its products and services, and allow visitors to easily navigate from the Philsteel Holdings website to any of the subsidiary websites and vice versa.
Philsteel is the only Filipino steel company that has been recognized by international award-giving bodies for product excellence, including the International Asia Award for Quality (1988, Hong Kong and 1989, London) and the Quality Summit Award in New York, winning the Gold Award for Product Excellence in 2014.
Philsteel started out in 1979 by establishing Philippine Steel Coating Corporation through a joint venture with then two of Australia’s leading industrial manufacturing names: John Lysaght Australia Ltd. (JLA) and Australia Mining and Smelting Company. This venture resulted in the first continuous galvanizing line in the country.
Spurred by the vision of producing economical and durable building materials comparable to the world’s best, Philsteel established Philmetal Products, Inc. in 1989. Premier Shelter Products was created in the year 2000 to support the Group’s sales in areas outside Philmetal’s scope, notably in the provinces outside NCR and Metro Cebu.
Both Philmetal and Premier Shelter are now engaged in roll-forming, slitting, shearing and fabrication of metal building products and systems such as roofing, cladding, floor decking, steel framing system and a host of steel sections and bended accessories that are integral parts of the building products.
When the Philippine government enacted the Iron and Steel Industry Act (Republic Act 7103), Philsteel took heed and in 1996 founded the Steel Corporation of the Philippines, addressing the government’s call for a private sector-led integration of the middle to downstream sector of the local steel industry, regarded as the linchpin of industrialization.
For the past four decades, the Philsteel Group has been in the frontline of the country’s struggle towards the development and modernization of the iron and steel industry, manufacturing and introducing breakthrough brands such as Galvalume 55, Colorbond and Galvabond Pure Zinc that have set new standards in the local construction industry. These global-class brands are proudly Filipino-made in Philsteel manufacturing sites located throughout the country.
“Our new websites offer our business partners, dealers and customers an easier way to learn more about the companies, our products and services, while allowing them to browse information based on their own choice,” says Philsteel Chairman and CEO Abeto A. Uy. “As we celebrate another milestone year in 2019, these websites will also reflect our continuing commitment to strengthening our mission for the Filipino people in raising the quality of roofing and building materials in the country to be at par with the world’s best.” (PR)
