INTEGRATING NEW RULES OF THE GAME
Steel making has to respond to new rules and standards by increasing the quality of the products while still improving working conditions.
In this environment that is undergoing profound changes, it is essential to understand the stakes of the market by constantly: being aware of the market, the customers, the personnel and drawing the warranted conclusions, and being available in the field. This is close relationship of trust that has to be developed and strengthened with the various players.
The same technical rigour, regardless of the size of the project entrusted.
Lepage puts all of its expertise at the service of its customers. The extent of the project entrusted does not affect the methods and the requirement levels. Through close supervision of the experienced teams in the field, everything is done so that the work is performed correctly and within the deadline.
Interventions can have different forms in different fields, such as:
- Boilerworking: replacing pouring ladle bottoms)
- Coordination and execution of complex projects
- Moving heavy machinery
- Process improvement
- Maintenance for LD-AOD Converters, electric furnaces (vaults, ferrules), heating and treatment furnaces
- Bridge cranes (cables and tracks)
ENSURING HIGH LEVEL OF PRODUCTION AND LIMITING SHUTDOWNS
Despite the stiff competition and subsequent budgetary constraints, Lepage provides a solution that meets the customer’s needs within the allotted budget.
THE MASTER WORD: QUALITY, YES, BUT WHAT QUALITY?
Quality is not seen solely in the work that has been performed. Quality is built upon throughout all of the levels: by respect for individuals, through acknowledgement of work well done, and through demanding securing of people and production. It ensures sustainability of the operations and relations with the contract givers.
My requirement? Quality, that is to say, securing the personnel, the quality of the department and of the services. This entails actively listening to the customer and the personnel.
