This is the group’s 4th concrete reinforcing bars export operation to the USA. It started on 6 August and finished on Friday, said the source.
Carried out at the Port of Mostaganem, the export operation consisted of 22,000 tonnes of 18-metre concrete reinforcing bars produced by the group for the first time, including 13,000 tonnes to the Port of Houston and 9,000 to the Port of Everglades. The exported quantity is worth US$11 million.
In November 2018, Tosyali had started its export activity with 10,000 tonnes of concrete reinforcing bars to the Port of Houston. The second export consisted of 15,000 tonnes of the same product and took place in April 2019 from the Port of Mostaganem.
The third operation took place in last June and was made up of 15,000 tonnes of concrete reinforcing bars from the Port of Everglades and Sun Juan in Porto Rico.
The group seeks exports to other countries, including Canada.
Inaugurated in 2013, Tosyali employs 3,800 workers and covers a large part of domestic needs for reinforcing bars and wire rod.
