Thyssenkrupp rebrands and expands service center network


Thyssenkrupp’s Steel-Service-Center group has expanded its capacity in Europe by adding German stainless steel specialist Edelstahl-Service-Center in Willich to its network, plus the planned integration of aluminium processor Metallcenter Wörth by the end of the fiscal year, Thyssenkrupp said on Friday. The Service-Center group will also start to operate under the new name of Materials Processing Europe.

The new service centers follow the recent acquisition of the steel center in Györ, Hungary, to target the automotive sector, as reported. The added locations have increased the annual production capacity of the network to more than 2 million metric tons, according to Thyssenkrupp. Around 40% of sales are now made outside Germany. The networks supply carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium.

“We are confident that our international organisation and our product diversity represent unique selling points on the market and will enable us to meet rising customer requirements,” said Marcus Wöhl, CEO of Thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe.
