First on Fielders and Aramax Freespan roofing. The website is just a brochure page but the original website had lots of data and photo's including specs. Hopefully they get this website up and running shortly especially since they have the mobile mill etc. Here is a screen clip from one of the spec sheets - not clear as from a cashed copy.

There's many more - but this selection gives an idea as to the capabilities of Aramax FreeSpan. Hopefully they may get some leads from this article?
Now onto the latest rumours doing the rounds.
- Onesteel to buy rollformers, reo & steel merchants? Fielders is mentioned in this - but could they afford to buy this and not it's major rival Revolution? Imagine the fireworks if this did occur between management!!
- BlueScope all cashed up and after lots of the smaller rollformers so they can guarantee a supply for their coil? Not a good move as they are using the CO2 Tax donation Greg Combet gave them. but that's another story.
- A merge between BlueScope and OneSteel (now the ACCC would investigate this) has been sprouted - but seems unlikely as OneSteel currently has found the correct path. BlueScope management still at a loss as to what's happened, is happening and what could happen? If they sack more workers and close another furnace - the executives will give themselves another bonus.
- The last and still a possibility is the merge between two large rollformers that would bring them up to position 2 or maybe even 1 - if they get the backing of OneSteel.
Anything is possible this year - most will happen after end of 2011 - 2012 F/Y.
