Merging the voestalpine Stahl Service Center with voestalpine Anarbeitung to form the voestalpine Steel & Service Center GmbH has created Europe's most modern steel service center.
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.
Europe’s largest steel service center with a delivery volume of 1.8 million tons
The new voestalpine Steel & Service Center GmbH offers a comprehensive product mix. It is Europe’s largest integrated steel service center, producing 1.65 million tons in Linz alone. A further 200,000 tons are processed at the sites in Poland and Romania. The product mix includes:
- Slit strips and cut sheet
- Cut blanks for the automotive industry
- Cut shapes for the mechanical engineering industry and
- Entire parts and components for the commercial vehicles industry.
The merger brings several advantages for customers: they benefit from a slimmer and more efficient organization with a wider product mix and excellently trained employees. A total of 750 employees work at the new the voestalpine Steel & Service Center GmbH.
New voestalpine corporate design
The voestalpine Group is marking the consistent implementation of its strategy and its changing self-image by updating its visual identity: its transformation from a European steel company to a global technology and capital goods group is now also being mirrored in its corporate design. The new visual identity combines tradition with future expectations, and increasingly symbolizes dynamism and a focus on the future.
