Ciudad Industria, Barrio Bahay Pari Meycauayan City Bulacan, Region 3 (Central Luzon)
The Meycauayan Works of SteelAsia houses two rolling mill lines which the company calls M1 and M2. The latter is a 100,000 tpy cross-country rolling mill commissioned in 1988, and scheduled for retirement by 2016.
M1 on the other hand is a Philippine steel industry pioneer and is the heart of the Meycauayan Works. Commissioned in 1996, it was the country’s first modern rolling mill. It featured many pioneering technologies such as 12-meter billet capability, walking-hearth furnace, in-line rolling train configuration, independent drives, Level-2 automation, quick size change and more new advances that allowed the Philippine steel industry to leapfrog into the modern era of efficiency, productivity, conservation and operational health and safety. The mill was given tax incentives by the Philippine Board of Investments as a Pioneer investment, due to these new technologies. The mill has been a multiple and Hall of Fame Awardee of the Department of Energy for energy conservation.
M1 is also the first rebar rolling mill in the Philippines to have the following certifications; ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management) and UK CARES (British Standard).
Until 2014, when SteelAsia’s Davao Works was commissioned it was the Philippines largest rolling mill with a capacity of 450,000 tons per year.
The most significant fact about M1 is that it changed the Philippine steel industry. The capabilities of the mill raised the benchmarks of reliable service, quality and low cost. The mill put the consumer first and emphasized customer satisfaction and added value. The mill allowed the business of rebar to become de-commoditized and more of a service differentiated industry.
