In the future, we will go for direct forming sections even for the bigger sizes, i.e. up to 24 inches and 500 X 500 mm. It is important to keep up with technology. We are constantly evaluating our valued suppliers, manufacturing systems and internal procedures to determine where improvements and efficiencies can be made.
