From the moment the steel is taken off the truck, it is received into the Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) system. All of its specifications; material type, poundage, heat number, country of origin, mill source are known, recorded and traceable in the system.
All materials are also designated a precise internal tracking number for our own purposes. The steel is color-coded based on this internal tracking and specification and can be easily identified in the yard. Its unique heat number, traceable all the way back to the mill it came from, is how material is issued to each job.
This advanced MRP system is fully customizable to meet the customers’ requirements or specifications. For example, if there is a particular inspection or hold point required by you, our valued customer, we have the ability to make it happen, seamlessly. We can tell you exactly when the inspection or hold happened and precisely the employee that carried it out.
