Reduced weight, increased load capacity
“By switching to Strenx 700MC E, we’ve been able to reduce the weight of our trailers by around 10-20 percent, thus increasing the load capacity by between 100 and 400 kg,” admits Pirker.
“Strenx 700MC E behaves very well during welding and cutting, with hardly any deformations,” he continues. “And as it arrives tailored from our partner, we’re able to process it directly, saving time and money.”
Member of the My Inner Strenx® program
Gsodam Fahrzeugbau has been a member of the My Inner Strenx® customer program since February 2020.
“The certification is a great award and challenge for us – we’re very proud of it,” says Pirker, adding: “Not everyone is suitable for this partnership, but SSAB evaluated us in various ways to see if we were. We sent them drawings and constructions, which they tested and decided we were a fit – which also makes us very proud.”
Last but not least, as a result of the My Inner Strenx® membership, the company’s geographic reach and catchment area has also expanded.
“Gsodam is now known far and wide!” exclaims Pirker. “Through My Inner Strenx, many customers in Europe have taken notice of us because everyone knows that being certified by My Inner Strenx means you deliver perfect quality.”
