AHMEEK, Michigan -- Neuvokas Corp is the industry leading composite rebar manufacturer producing GatorBar® for concrete reinforcement within the construction supply community. Over the last 18 – 24 months, adoption has grown by leaps and bounds. What many customers and users typically focus upon is price or initial cost…a low hanging fruit. However, three of GatorBar’s® real benefits, superior strength to size, labor and transportation savings, may be largely overlooked by many but should be key decision-making determinants.
Chris Raymond, GatorBar’s Director of Marketing & Sales Management commented, “Due to its increased tensile strength at smaller bar diameters, GatorBar® #3 can often be substituted for steel #4 at even more significant initial cost savings. Additionally, its light weight and easy of use, allows considerably more GatorBar® to be installed in the same amount of time as steel…typically there is a 30% - 45% installation labor savings. And, from a retailer’s perspective, GatorBar® becomes a ‘one stop drop’ delivery instead of one requiring multiple days, trucks and people. These logistical savings are phenomenal and where retailers and installers really make their hay.”
Raymond further said, “In today’s environment where installers and retailers are especially challenged in finding people to work, these savings are key to continued success and profitability. Even when steel prices bottom out, GatorBar® will continue to not only provide better and stronger performance, but at a lower total project cost when all key factors are considered.”
