BUSINESS MODEL

The Ferragon way of doing business.

Operating with a 100% toll-processing business model, Ferragon offers a comprehensive package of metal processing services that help eliminate waste and reduce costs. Our customers buy only the services they need while keeping their processing costs variable and flexible.

Because we don’t buy or sell a single ounce of metal, we are a “neutral” party in the markets we serve. This provides us the flexibility to work with any mill, service center, broker, and OEM within the metals supply chain.

Ferragon strategically invests in metal processing services and technologies that are dependent on total metal market consumption— not on metal pricing. We purchase heavy duty, high volume processing lines that are often difficult for a single metals company to profitably employ themselves. Since we can provide our services to myriad companies, we achieve economies of scale and cost advantages that give us defensible, competitive advantages.

Furthermore, our business strategy dictates that we geographically locate our facilities directly in the lanes of steel commerce and in areas that provide logistical shipping advantages so that the combined costs of freight-in, processing and freight-out are the lowest possible. He who wastes least, profits mosts.
