WARRIâ€”THE Delta Steel Company Limited, DSC, Ovwian/Aladja, Delta State, would soon be one of the world’s leading steel companies, the Joint Managing Director, JMD, Dr. Samuel Nwabuokei, has assured.
Nwabuokei said that the companyâ€™s mission statement, to attain and maintain leadership through technology and product superiority at a competitive cost to maximize value addition, remained the watchword.
Dr. Nwabuokei, who spoke with newsmen in his office last weekend, posited that the DSC was now ISO: 9001:2000 certified, in addition to being awarded NIS 117 silver certificate award in the field of construction reinforcement bars for two consecutive years.
It would be recalled that the DSC, which was acquired from the Federal Government and is now privately operated by Global Infrastructure Nigeria Limited, GINL, has continued to receive commendation and endorsement for its product quality and best practices.
He said that DELTA QAST, the brand name for DSCâ€™s reinforcement bars, was ideal for application in RCC structure in flyover, dams, bridges and other criticalÂ structures where high yield load (load design) is required without compromising on ductility as it conforms to International Standard BS4449.
Nwabuokei praised the Standard Organization of Nigeria, SON, for its commendation and endorsement of DSC quality products by leading construction companies amidst effects of operating environment which tend to slow down the pace of progress of most manufacturing concerns.
He argued that it was of significance that while the manufacturing industry was reeling under economic crunch, DSC was soaring with high quality products.
