A discovery in Mexico put ARMINOX® on the track of a successful product development.
During a journey to Mexico in 1998 an engineer from ARMINOX® noted a remarkable fact. In Progreso were two maritime structures. A pier, constructed and built by the international contractor company, Christiani & Nielsen, completed 1941. Close to this pier, in about 1970 another pier for larger ships was built.
By 1998 the latter pier had collapsed due to corrosion. The older pier remained upright and maintenance free. The secret of the pier is invisible. It is hidden in the columns of the pier, reinforced by stainless steel, a comprehensive independent report revealed.
This report became one of the main pillars in ARMINOX®´ innovative development of stainless steel reinforcement products.
