Steel at Christmas

This year has flown past and in its wake,
it has left a sea of undoing

As the Northern Caribbean tends to its wounds and digs down deep to find the strength for optimism and renewal, we are humbled by the great many stories of bravery, courage and generosity, throughout the islands, ravaged by Irma and Maria.

In the Caribbean, we live close to the unpredictability of nature, constantly aware of its deceptive and dangerous underbelly, often concealed by its beauty.

Our work is to continuously strive for higher quality products, to protect and serve our island customers and to minimise these catastrophes, where possible, by providing more product information and support.  Best use brings best results.

But top quality is not enough. Consistency in manufacture and supply are the essential elements to build, during the calm and in a timely manner, be there to meet the needs and burdens of restoration, after the storm.

Our technical skill allows us to produce, but our regional experience and connectedness
affords us the capability of prompt delivery.

Even as we live in the 21st century, shipping and travel are still a burden to regional development, and, on occasions, a major hurdle to storm and disaster relief.

So saying, we thank our shippers and skippers for their sterling work throughout the year, as they maintain our supply line, often regardless of difficulty.

As we watch the region’s construction industry evolve, we are aware of better techniques and a richer understanding of strength and durability in both industrial and private constructions. These positive changes auger well for our future security and investments in bricks, mortar and the significant role of steel.

ECMIL travels, this year, have taken us to St. Lucia, in March, where we participated in The Specialty Caribbean Expo ’17; to Cuba, in early November, showing for a second consecutive year at the Havana International Fair, FIHAV 2017 and also, at home in St. Vincent, as part of the 'Everything Vincy' Exhibition, celebrating the island’s independence.
We never tire of bringing our dedicated commitment and products to each and every Caribbean market.

As a leading regional supplier of manufactured steel items for almost 40 years, we wish to thank all of our customers, suppliers, retailers, associates and friends for your enthusiastic support in 2017.

We make special mention of all that we know in storm damaged islands, whose work has just begun
and wish that the Spirit of Christmas energises their efforts to rebuild, for a better and more optimistic future.

We look forward to assisting and supplying you in a new and fresh 2018.

Wishing you A Merry Christmas and a Positive and Productive New Year
