ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe expands its service network on four continents

(PresseBox) (Duisburg, ) To offer more and better services to its customers in the construction industry and the minerals & mining sector worldwide, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe is expanding its heavy plate distribution network, with new service centers on four continents. Alongside wear-resistant and high-strength special structural steels such as XAR®, XABO®, N-A-XTRA® and PERFORM®, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe now also offers complete components and repair solutions.

With the growth of many countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa, global demand for raw materials is rising. For the mining and transportation of raw materials and the expansion of the infrastructure in these regions, special structural steels from ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe open up a number of interesting opportunities. To be able to deal even more individually with the requirements of its customers in booming regions, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe is now broadening its sales strategy. "For the future we are looking beyond the sale of a single plate, extending our value chain and expanding our distribution network to improve availability and increase our processing capabilities on four continents," says head of sales Peter Selbach. As a result ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe will be offering companies in the minerals & mining industry and the construction sector an even wider range of services in the future. Tailored processing solutions will round off the portfolio.

The global network of ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe's Heavy Plate operating unit consists of the company's own service centers, joint ventures and exclusive partnerships at the most important high-growth business locations. For example the Chilean subsidiary ThyssenKrupp Aceros y Servicios has been supporting the booming minerals & mining industry in Latin America for 50 years. Specialist processing operations serve customers - including mining companies and their suppliers - in Chile and Colombia. In the future the heavy plate experts will also be using the expertise they have acquired in South America in Asia: ThyssenKrupp recently opened a warehouse in Taiwan to supply the Southeast Asian market.
