An all encompassing Project Service provided by Atlas Steels
The demand of supplying product and services to a project are very different to those of the typical customer in every day industry. Usually a project is in a construction or closed down maintenance phase where supply on time and in good order is absolutely essential to the build program. There are usually a series of hurdles that must be right for the project supplier to achieve the time frame required by the Project Manager. Typically these include:
- Supply. The right product sourced from a quality and reliable mill is paramount to a successful project supply.
- Logistics. Coordination to ensure product arrives on time. Nearly all specialty steel is sourced from overseas mills which add significantly to this equation.
- Warehousing. In many project supply situations the Project Manager required product to be supplied to a third party fabricator who often draw down from warehouse storage to meet a fabrication program.
- Management. The success of a project supplier is only as good as the people who manage the project and the support that they receive from within their company to provide the services required to make it happen.
- Technical support. Being at the forefront of specialty metals with the knowledge and knowhow to understand steel qualities as well as limitations can assist Project Managers to make well informed decisions.
- Response when it goes wrong? It is rare that a project supply will not have some change or disruption to supply. This could range from shipping delays to changes in the build program. These occurrences usually test the skills and resources of the project supplier and their ability to respond is a key measure to how well they can manage and meet the needs of the Project Manager.
