The Association of Steel Tube and Pipe Manufacturers (ASTPM) is the sponsor of the tubular category in the upcoming South African Steel Awards which will take place in October.
The steel awards are improving every year, owing to the dynamic and concerted effort by the marketing team of nonprofit organisation and event organiser the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction for every edition of the event, to which many industry stakeholders can attest, says ASTPM executive director Keitumetse Moumakoe.
“The introduction of the steel awards’ mobile application in 2018 enabled industry participants to view and vote for their favourite projects at the tip of their fingers, which was exciting.”
The tubular category showcases some of the best tubular structures that were completed in 2018.
“I look forward to the impressive projects that we get to judge over the period preceding the actual awards date. We pay attention to the creativity, ingenuity and innovation that our detailers, architects and steel construction fabricators display every year,” he comments.
Further, he states that, as the industry is currently under strain, the steel awards are a necessary and an enduring reminder for every participant to persist amid adversity, and celebrate the collective efforts and achievements of the industry.
