“Gillette Steel is known for its high level of service and can be counted on, much like our Hardox Wear Plate,” said Ben Schneider, SSAB regional sales manager, branded products. “Now with the partnership with SSAB, Gillette and its customers will also benefit from the backing of a global company with extensive resources and technical expertise in wear applications for the mining field.”

One of the goals moving forward is to grow the company’s value-added services and fabrication capabilities and its appointment as a Hardox Wearparts Center will help them do that, according to Kevin Wilson, Gillette Steel vice president. Further, it will allow the company to offer services they couldn’t in the past.
