Group structure

The Group has a vertically integrated business model that ensures control over all stages of the production process; from mining, processing steel, to manufacturing high value added steel products. Service centres and trading companies ensure steady, just-in-time supply and a high standard of customer service in more than 70 countries around the world.

Material- and energy-intensive operations are concentrated in low-cost regions; whereas finished products are manufactured in local markets. This allows for optimization of production costs and ensures more efficient customer relations.
