Sometimes size is not everything

By News

Late December we got our seventh saw delivered to our warehouse in Stavanger. The new saw is a Pegas 300 that is perfectly suited to cut round bar in the range from 6-130 mm. We have put it to work in the range 22-100 mm. This frees up capacity in our bigger saws to handle all the bigger diameters where they have their sweet spot.

Our operator Anna is very happy with the performance of the Pegas 300, and we are very happy to register an increase in productivity and better utilization of the saw blades in our bigger machines.

“We are always looking for ways to improve and to maximize our resources,” says warehouse manager Frode Kolnes. He is very happy, both with the saw and the services provided by our local supplier Alf I. Larsen.

“Having the right tools for the job is very important for us. This enables us to deliver the product our customers have come to expect from Sverdrup Steel. Not only a high-quality steel product, but equally important on time delivery, the correct packaging and paperwork. If an extraordinary situation arises for the customer, they appreciate our will to go the extra mile for them.

In order to for Sverdrup to further develop our total product, investments in resources is needed. And I am glad that our management is driving these processes throughout the company.” Frode Kolnes states.

With the new design on the product pages and small functions reflecting just that, we are now expanding our product sheet PDF section.
