voestalpine supports those affected by the hurricane in Texas with emergency funding of USD 350,000
The US state of Texas is currently experiencing one of the greatest natural disasters in its history. Thanks to high safety standards, the voestalpine direct reduction plant which was erected there in last years survived Harvey—the hurricane of the century which has been wreaking damage since last week—without substantial damage. In the entire South Texas region where Corpus Christi, the site of voestalpine Texas LLC, is located, there was heavy damage that extended to the complete destruction of entire residential areas. For this reason, the voestalpine Group is offering immediate support for affected employees and local citizens, making available USD 350,000 in emergency funding.
