Background: Meycauayan Works of SteelAsia houses two rolling mill lines, M1 and M2.
M1 is a Philippine steel industry pioneer and is the heart of the Meycauayan Works. Commissioned in 1996, it was the country's first modern rolling mill. It featured many pioneering technologies such as the 12-meter billet capability, walking-hearth furnace, in-line rolling train configuration, independent drives, Level-2 automation, quick size change, and more new advances that allowed the Philippine steel industry to leapfrog into the modern era of efficiency, productivity, conservation, and operational health and safety.
The Philippine Board of Investments gave the mill tax incentives as a Pioneer investment due to these new technologies. The mill has been a multiple Hall of Fame Awardee of the Department of Energy for energy conservation.
M1 is also the first rebar rolling mill in the Philippines to have the following certifications; ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management), and UK CARES (British Standard).
Until 2014, when SteelAsia's Davao Works was commissioned, it was the Philippines' largest rolling mill with a capacity of 450,000 tons per year.
The most significant fact about M1 is that it changed the Philippine steel industry. The mill's capabilities raised reliable service, quality, and low-cost benchmarks. The mill put the consumer first and emphasized customer satisfaction and added value. The mill allowed the rebar business to become de-commoditized and more of a differentiated service industry. M2 is a 100,000 TPY cross-country rolling mill commissioned in 1988.
