Bgy. Perrelos, Carcar City Cebu Region 7 (Central Visayas)
The Carcar Works of SteelAsia houses SteelAsia’s M4, the only rebar rolling mill in the Visayas group of islands. The mill was established by the AC Steel Industries in 1998 and mothballed a year later soon after the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. In 2009 the SteelAsia group acquired the mill and after rehabilitating and upgrading the facility, re-commissioned it in the same year.
The mill was upgraded with Level-2 automation and is at par with world standards of productivity, conservation and operational health and safety. Originally commissioned as a 150,000 tpy mill, SteelAsia has upgraded its capacity of 300,000 tpy.
When SteelAsia started up M4 operations Cebu buyers saw rebar costs reduced by over PhP 1,000 (USD 25) per ton. Cebu consumers and distributors had huge freight savings as they no longer needed to ‘import’ rebar from Manila. M4 could be accessed by the public for picked-up orders 24 hours a day, 7 days week. Besides the lower rebar cost, the impact was also immediately felt by the region’s business community as mill created economic activity for logistics, services, operations supply and jobs. Also immediately, mill operations created so much port activity that today, SteelAsia is the No. 1 tax payer (for the importation of its raw materials) at the Port of Cebu.
