State-run airport operator Mexico City Airport Group, also known as GACM, has suspended a contract it had awarded to industrial supplier Grupo Gilbert Estructuras en Acero, SteelOrbis has learned.
As previously reported by SteelOrbis, GACM had awarded a contract to Grupo Gilbert Estructuras en Acero to provide 49,000 mt of steel to the Mexico City airport.
However, the state-run airport operator issued a letter of suspension, which “provisionally” cancels the contract.
GACM didn’t immediately provide a reason for the provisional contract suspension.
A number of smaller companies, including Aptiver and Comercializadora
de Metales la Perla, were some of the bidders for the steel supply tender.
At the time Grupo Gilbert won the contract, a few companies questioned the winner’s ability to provide the service, as it reportedly failed to meet certain requirements of the tender.
