After a solid first quarter of the current business year, the second quarter revealed some vulnerabilities in individual business segments that had not been anticipated in the early part of the summer.
The 2020 voestalpine Group strategy is characterized by strong internationalization efforts focusing on increased growth in both North America and Asia. voestalpine currently operates 64 companies and locations in Asia with a total of 3,600 employees (including joint ventures). Six percent of the most recent corporate sales were achieved in Asia, corresponding to roughly 700 million euros.

By 2016, voestalpine Austria Draht will have completed construction of Europe’s most modern wire rolling mill at its Leoben-Donawitz site. The mill will then produce around 550,000 tons of high quality wire rods each year for the automotive and energy sector. The nine-figure investment will secure the long-term future of the Donawitz site, headquarters of the voestalpine Group’s extremely successful Metal Engineering Division. Over the past five years, the Group has already invested more than a billion euros in its eight sites in Styria. During the last business year, around 8,000 employees in the Metal Engineering and Special Steel Divisions in Styria generated revenue of EUR 3.3 billion. 800 new jobs were created and 360 apprentices trained in the region in 2012.
