The company Bono Steel, situated in Gauteng, South Africa, opened its´ doors in 2006 seeing a gap in the market for quick profiling at competitive pricing. They started small but with good business sense and initiative, the company has managed to grow from strength to strength and is now widely known in the industry and supply the greater Gauteng region. They continually strive to attain newer and more advanced technologies, which allows for faster turnaround times and high-quality service levels. The team is dynamic and knows the importance of staying in touch with all the latest trends.
In 2020, they saw a need for further expansion to accommodate their 24-hour shifts and to remain competitive in the industry and too continuously offer high quality products, at competitive prices and with timeous delivery. It was during Covid that they realized that it was even more necessary to stay ahead of the game and stand out from the competition. Their machine arrived in 2021 and they have not looked back, ever since.
We asked Wayne Stanton, General manager of Bono Steel, why they felt the need to expand their factory floor. ¨Bono Steel has been engaging with customers and has realised the need for a quicker product turnaround time. We need to produce a component that is cut, ground, bevelled and ready for welding. By speeding up our services, we become more efficient and save ourselves and our customers time and money. We also determined that there was a need to cut stainless steel up to 50mm thick and the Microstep plasma cutter is more than capable of handling this, with excellent repeatability and consistency.¨
