In North America Bekaert is present since the 1950s. The real expansion started in the 1970s with the success of steel cord for tire reinforcement. Today, we have 15 plants and sales offices in the United States and Canada.
Bekaert’s answer to the market conditions in this region is customer oriented innovation: our rubber reinforcement plants for example are offering high-tensile, light steel cord constructions, bead wire and hose reinforcement. Other plants concentrate on tailor-made flat and shaped wires, guide rail cables, ropes, innovative fencing solutions, ACSR conductor strands, steel cores for overhead power lines, PC strand, and a variety of steel wire specialties for construction markets.
In dialogue with our customers, we work constantly on developing and implementing the best solutions to their needs. Key words of our way of doing business are efficiency, great flexibility, just-in-time delivery and close cooperation.
