In June 2015 the two companies voestalpine Anarbeitung GmbH and voestalpine Stahl Service Center were merged to create a joint Group company, the voestalpine Steel & Service Center GmbH. The new company also incorporates the two subsidiaries voestalpine Steel Service Center Polska and voestalpine Steel Service Center Romania. Integrating the enterprises to form a joint company has created a competence center for processing steel strip and heavy plate in the Steel Division.
