Burlington, Ontario—CareGo has been named a finalist in the category of “Best Innovation: Process” in American Metal Market’s annual Awards for Steel Excellence competition.

“Best Innovation: Process” is a new and highly competitive category that was introduced for this year’s competition.

The prestigious international competition is open to steel mills, metal service centres, ports and companies that work within the metal industry such as CareGo. The winner will be announced June 14 in New York city.

CareGo’s award application described its patent-pending disruptive TELIA technology that allows more steel to be stored in the same amount of space, speeds up loading and unloading, increases employee productivity while creating a safer workplace, and virtually eliminates the risk of product damage.

It’s an honour to be chosen again and we’re very pleased,” says president and CEO Demetrius Tsafaridis. “Our optimization and automation tools revolutionize the way steel coil, pipe and tube are handled and we welcome this opportunity to share our story.”

The award competition is judged by senior executives in the global steel industry.
