Steel Service Center Executives Rank Hypertherm #1 Cutting Brand

Hypertherm …three years in a row!

Hypertherm, a New Hampshire based manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, has announced its selection as the “Top Cutting Brand” in a new survey of steel service center executives. This is the third year in a row Hypertherm has ranked as the top choice in the cutting equipment category, which includes all methods of cutting including oxyfuel, plasma, and laser.

The final ranking is an indication of which brands command the largest share of mind, and highest levels of customer satisfaction. In conducting the survey, Metal Center News asked participants to select the brands they would endorse and buy from in the future. In addition to cutting, service center executives also ranked products in the coil processing, sawing, and material handling categories.

“Though this is the third year in a row we’ve received this award, it is still humbling to know steel service centers think so highly of Hypertherm and our products and services,” said Jeff Deckrow, vice president of Hypertherm North America. “We know current economic conditions are tough for a lot of businesses and are continuing to work hard to come out with solutions that help companies reduce costs and increase throughput.”

Hypertherm’s Built for Business Integrated Cutting Solutions is just one example of products designed to help steel service centers, fabricators, and other businesses. The Built for Business line-up includes technologies like True Hole™, True Bevel™, and Rapid Part™ which automate hole and bevel cutting, and increase parts produced per hour. This in turn means increased time savings, more consistent results, and greater profitability for businesses.
