Pacific Steel takes sponsorship to the next level


New Zealand’s only manufacturer of wire rod, reinforcing bar and coil products and the country’s principle recycler of steel, Pacific Steel, has joined the RMB Commercial Project Awards family of national sponsors, in association with PlaceMakers.

This is the second year that Pacific Steel will be involved with New Zealand’s premier building awards programme. Coming on board late last year, Pacific Steel sponsored two award categories at the national commercial awards ceremony held in Auckland.

This year its sponsorship extends to a national level with the Seismic Industrial/Utility Project award category.
This commercial award category includes projects with a manufacturing, industrial or utility function — whether public or private — and could include projects such as a warehouse, prison, distribution outlet, storage facility factory, municipal service or bridge.

Pacific Steel marketing, planning and distribution manager Allister Ackers says the sponsorship reinforced the company’s commitment to setting benchmarks in the construction industry.
“This new sponsorship is exciting, and we look forward to meeting the builders who excel in this challenging category at each of the 20 local Association Awards.
“Pacific Steel sees the RMB Commercial Project Awards, particularly this category, as a way of acknowledging the companies and people who construct vital elements of New Zealand’s infrastructure.”

Pacific Steel products are used almost everywhere you look, from the reinforcing steel used in major construction sites, infrastructure, commercial, industrial and residential buildings.
One of these products is the Seismic reinforcing steel range, after which its sponsored RMB Commercial Project Award category is named.

Seismic is the only reinforcing steel made in New Zealand for New Zealand’s unique earthquake zone building conditions.
“Builders can have total confidence in the Seismic range because all products meet all requirements of the New Zealand standard for reinforcing steel
(AS/NZS 4671) and have been fully endorsed by the Department of Building and Housing,” Mr Ackers says.

Seismic brand reinforcing steel is made by Pacific Steel Group, operators of the most environmentally friendly steel mill in the world.
