Over the years Triangle has proven to be a leader in the automotive sector. We have become well known among the major automakers, who have continually depended on us to meet their needs of building new facilities, starting new projects, and updating existing plants and buildings.
As all the Automakers continue to grow in various operations, we work attentively to meet their needs of being on the cutting edge of technological, and eco-friendly options. In addition to new projects, Triangle provides continual maintenance and around the clock service, to the automotive industry.
Triangle's expertise in the steel industry dates back to the early 1930s and holds steady in today's ever-changing industrial world. We have continued to be committed to technical detail, and safety, which makes us a much sought-after option for electrical contracting among the large steel companies in southeast Michigan.
Triangle has worked on the rebuilding of blast furnaces since day one, including a once in a lifetime project at Serverstal in the early 2000s. This 97 day total rebuild of Blast Furnace C was featured in Iron Steel Technology Magazine March 2008 edition. Given the nature of the work and the schedule constraint engaged by the construction team, this project required first class effort and quality work. The new furnace has decreased operating costs by 20 percent while increasing production by 30 percent over the old furnace. Energy consumption is significantly reduced as the new system utilizes less costly pulverized coal in lieu of the industry norm of natural gas fuel. This new furnace produces 6500 tons of iron per day rather than the 4600 ton per day produced by the old furnace. The build ensures that the "Rouge" maintains its status as one of the pre-eminent steel making facilities in the world.
