BECT SAS - Stay competitive in the market

Since the 2008 crisis BECT SAS had to drop prices in order to stay competitive in the market. The hours per ton were high and they had to decrease it. Another thing they had to deal with was meeting European norms. BECT SAS wanted to reduce costs and invested in a saw-drill line with a V630M beam drilling machine with layout marking coupled with a VB1050 saw with infeed and outfeed cross transports.
