Howdy from voestalpine Texas LLC

voestalpine Texas LLC is the local presence of the voestalpine Group in South Texas and a 100% subsidiary of voestalpine AG.

Our goal is to build and operate the world’s most advanced and environmentally friendly direct reduction facility. This $740 million endeavor is voestalpine’s largest foreign investment to date and will bring 150 permanent high-qualified manpower to San Patricio County as well as some 800 construction jobs.

voestalpine Texas LLC and the Project is managed by a handpicked team of highly-motivated voestalpine executives who are passionate about quality, safety and the environment. For this team, this South Texas Project is far more than 'just’ a job. It’s an opportunity to do what we do even better and in a community that respects hard work, a clean environment and sound progress. We like to live where we work and look forward to getting to know and become a part of this community for years to come.

„Ladies and Gentlemen, There’s nothing more ...

„Ladies and Gentlemen, There’s nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. But an idea needs fertile ground and, above all, an idea needs passion. Only then will it develop into a dream, a vision, and a reality.
Our dream is about building and operating the most modern and environmentally friendly direct reduction plant. Right from the beginning, we were absolutely convinced that our dream, our vision could become reality here in San Patricio County. Apart from the excellent framework conditions, it was the people in this community who finally made the difference. Your openness, hospitality and professionalism are truly inspiring.
Sustainability and a long-term focus are core elements of voestalpine culture. We have made a commitment for the next 80 years. This means that even the youngest members of our team won’t experience the end of this agreement during their working lives, they probably won’t even live that long. But it’s not only about us! It’s about our children and grandchildren who should successfully continue what we are starting today.
We are proud to be part of the Coastal Bend community and we take this responsibility very seriously. I wish the best of all to our employees, families, neighbors and friends in South Texas.“
