Demag overhead cranes deliver
The Feroleto Steel Company, established in 1958 and a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Tsusho American, Inc., is a leader in processing custom-rolled precision strip steel including cold rolled, hot rolled, coated, and high strength, low allow sheet and strip. Feroleto products are primarily relied upon by customers in the automotive, electrical and appliance industries.
Specialty application customers can customize the products to fit appropriate temperatures, thicknesses, gauges and width requirements. Feroleto Steel has facilities in Bridgeport, CT, Weirton, WV, and Knoxville, TN.
Faced with heightened customer expectations and production requirements, Feroleto Steel recognized the Company needed to acquire a new facility. After purchasing the selected facility, Feroleto Steel began working on customizing it to meet their needs. One area that required enhancement was overhead material handling as the facility needed electrification, runway reengineering and an overhead crane. After evaluating several overhead material product providers, Feroleto Steel chose Terex’s Demag-branded cranes and Service to help identify the right solution and execute the needed improvements.
Terex Material Handling Solution with Demag Cranes
Terex Material Handling is a global leader in supplying industrial cranes, crane components and services under the Demag brand. Leveraging their deep industry experience, Terex Material Handling worked with Feroleto Steel to understand their unique manufacturing process, and immediate and long-term business needs to successfully identify the right overhead material handling solution. One area that required increased attention was durability of the crane as Feroleto Steel frequently unloads many tons of coil by the train loads.
After evaluating several improvement options, Terex Material Handling provided a roadmap towards enhancing the facility, which included adding a double-girder, 30 ton Demag crane. Demag cranes are uniquely engineered with world-class safety and technology features that enhance quality, productivity
“We are happy with everything,” says Glenn Valentine, General Manager of Feroleto Steel Company. “We chose Demag cranes for their safety, quality and reliability, and that’s exactly what we have experienced.“
