It is fundamental for the company to continuously improve its products and, despite the world epidemiological situation, it has not stopped producing during nearly two years of the pandemic sweeping the world, Ubaldo Acosta Cepero, General Director of Derivados del Acero in Camagüey, told this publication.
During 2021, the company fulfilled its monthly production plan, with alternative manufacturing, despite the impossibility of importing the fundamental raw materials it requires.
“The main aim of our productions is to assure the development of the objectives of the programs prioritized by our nation, which are a main part of the sustenance of the country as far as the nutrition, construction of houses, production of exportable items and others.”
All this work is focused on serving the population and developing the national economy, so no effort will be spared to achieve our goals.
