CENTRO INOX: A SHORT INTRODUCTION
The no profit association Centro Inox is constituted by the major stainless steel producers in Italy that are involved in the production of sheets, strip, bars, tubes, profiles, etc. with the most varied types of "materials".
On the base of its decades of experience, Centro Inox provides advice with data and technical information about the physical and mechanical characteristics and corrosion resistance properties, on the technology of processing and installing stainless steels, as well as on the most current and useful applications in all sectors of consumption.
Institutionally it orients the end-user on the appropriate choices, even based on the concept of "quality".
For members also it provides statistical data and specific market research for different steel products and application areas.
The action of Centro Inox, that is planned with its members which orient the main promotional strategies, is essentially of two types:
- Maintaining and consolidating the industry sectors where stainless steel is already widely applied (chemical and petrochemical industry, household, appliances, food, etc.)
- Searching for new applications for which the stainless steel can be used instead of traditional materials (building, transport, etc.)
Another very important purpose is also linked to standardization work and to legislative activities. The association, in fact, participates in committees of national and European legislation dedicated to stainless steels and it is an important advisory body at the legislative level.
It also allows, through the company Centro Inox Servizi Srl, a subscription to a network of "dedicated" services, for continuous and personalized assistance.
