Ternium, a leading manufacturer of flat and long steel products in Latin America, has chosen DUMA-BANDZINK equipment for the expansion of its Pesquería Industrial Center in Mexico, specifically within the hot-dip galvanizing line.
The Ternium Industrial Center stands out as one of the world's most advanced industrial complexes. This expansion marks Ternium's most significant investment project to date, including the establishment of a hot-dip galvanizing line expected to be operational by the end of 2025.
The line will annually produce 600,000 tons of hot-dip galvanized steel, used in various strength classes for diverse industrial sectors such as the automotive industry, renewable energy, construction, and agriculture.
The decision to collaborate with DUMA-BANDZINK for this project is grounded in the last reference of the previous brownfield project, modernizing the Air-Knife at Ternium Monterrey's G4U line. The established presence in the Mexican market and the ongoing service partnership between Ternium and DUMA-BANDZINK have further strengthened the customer relationship. Additionally, a successful partnership with the major plant builder Fives has been established, leading to the realization of this new project.
The line will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including Integrated Solution (Air-Knives System) and comprehensive bath equipment. Installation is scheduled for the first quarter of 2025.
This project represents a significant milestone for DUMA-BANDZINK as it is our first greenfield project in Mexico and will be another key reference for the Mexican market.
