FORTACERO S.A. de C.V. has been a steel distributor for almost 60 years. Over time, they have sold structural and industrial tubular sections, along with other steel products, in Mexico. With 18 locations throughout Mexico, FORTACERO is creating a smarter “one-stop-shop” business where their customers can access a comprehensive range of steel products from one distributor – capitalizing on their two major advantages: large inventory and fast delivery. Due to ever growing industry demands, six years ago, FORTACERO decided to venture into the tube and pipe manufacturing business by installing multiple mills to produce their own product instead. Recently, they have increased their output by commissioning a fourth mill, a twin 1.5 – 3.0 inch mill, equipped with their fourth Thermatool CFI Solid State HF Welder. Now they are serving the construction and industrial markets, as well as all the regional distributors throughout Mexico and southern USA.
Over the previous six years, FORTACERO has selected Thermatool’s CFI High Frequency technology to ensure high production speeds with superior process control – producing high-quality product, sustaining inventory, and maintaining on-time delivery – at competitive prices. “We want to have a trusted brand at the heart of our tube mills,” Eduardo Treviño, CEO of FORTACERO said, “To continue to be a reliable supplier for our customers, we need trusted and reliable equipment – that is why we chose Thermatool. Alongside their superior service and industry knowledge, we will continue to look to Thermatool’s 70+ years of experience to keep growing.”
“Thermatool has been an integral part of the growth at FORTACERO. We value being a part of their success, and we look forward to partnering with them for many years to come,” said Cesar Tejeida, Sales and Service Manager for Thermatool. “Local service technicians and spare parts in Mexico and throughout Latin America ensure our customers, like FORTACERO, can reach us at any time.”
Alongside FORTACERO’s promise to provide the best for their customers, they created a customer portal known as FORTAweb which was launched for ease of access for tube purchases, as well as other valuable resources. Similarly, Thermatool has also released their Thermatool+ Customer Portal that offers quick and effective online service and support for customers like FORTACERO. “With the Thermatool+ Customer Portal, customers can now have 24-hour access to their specific Thermatool product information, learn from video guides, purchase tooling and consumables, and stay on top of their most important data, all from a computer or tablet,” said Brad Eichner, Marketing Manager for Thermatool.
