Benjamine Yao - Man of steel

Food for thought in October-November Asian Dragon

Benjamin Yao's story—about steering Steel Asia from cottage industry to heavy industry, through one crisis after another—is one survival against the odds.

"There's always a solution to any problem, if the parties will just cooperate," says Benjamin. "We never gave up." In the last 10 years, Steel Asia, the country's top steel bar manufacturer and supplier, has expanded more than 10 times. They have set up mills in Cebu and Davao, and are opening new facilities to recycle scrap steel.
