Unrivalled customer service is the hallmark of Outokumpu’s Fortinox Coil Service Center in Buenos Aires. Known for offering both standard and tailored solutions, the Fortinox team has been serving the needs of its customers since 1991.  

In Argentina, Fortinox is the only facility offering coil-to-coil polishing. Guaranteeing a uniform, consistent polish over the surface of an entire coil, coil-to-coil polishing (in thicknesses ranging from 0.4 to 3.0 mm) represents a distinct advantage over the limitations of sheet-to-sheet polishing. 

Using material of the highest quality imported from Outokumpu’s mills in Europe, the United States and Mexico, Fortinox offers comprehensive slitting, cut-to-length, multi-blanking and polishing services. Stainless steel coil and strip, precision strip, sheet available in ferritic and austenitic and stainless steel as well as pipes, tubes, bars and fittings, Fortinox also offers ware plate, blocks and bars in special grades of carbon steel.

Fortinox utilizes the newest, most precise cutting equipment available; preloaded with three coils, the slitting machine cuts in widths up to 1,500 mm and packs without stopping. The cut-to-length machine automatically applies PVC coating to both sides of the material in lengths up to 6 meters, and the multi-blanking cutter handles up to three coils (widths up to 1,500 mm) at one time, for significant efficiency in high-volume orders.
