Get to know us!
Norex’s vision is to waste nothing by making the most of the worlds steel, therefore Norex offers classified secondary steel to customers. This means that all the available information about the product, such as specification, steel quality, and condition in terms of the Norex classification system, is provided to the customer. Norex believes that if the customer knows the defect of each product and can select the goods that fit their production process, the customer can benefit from working with secondary steel comparably to prime, but at a lower cost.
We offer specified secondary steel products direct from our own stock. The products are supplied to our warehouse and information is gathered upon arrival, and subjected to a detailed visual examination that renders the following result:
- Weight and measurements
- Apparent defects
- NOREX classification system (N1 to N4, where N1 is the best possible grade)
- Steel grade, or if unknown, steel grade range
- This information is posted on our website, along with price. The customer is then encouraged to make a selection based on this information. This is often referred to as “cherry picking”, and means that the customer selects only the products that he wants to buy.
Since “cherry picking” may result in few products of interest, we offer the possibility of reserving the selected products until a full load is selected and a delivery can be arranged. Thereafter, payment and delivery terms will be agreed and a contract will be sent to the customer. Delivery will occur once the terms of payment have been fulfilled.
