Recently during a meeting held at the headquarters of Acerinox Europe, the Chairman of the company, Rafael Miranda, and the CEO, Bernardo Velázquez, along with the factory management, informed the President of the Government of Andalusia, Susana Díaz, of an investment in the plant for the acquisition of new equipment with the latest technology which will enable production at the factory to be optimised, product quality to be improved, costs to be minimised and environmental impact to be reduced.
The investment was approved by the Board of Directors on 15 December and includes the acquisition of an annealing and pickling (AP) line and a new cold-rolling mill, as well as civil engineering works and auxiliary equipment required for the operation of these large facilities.
The new AP line will bring significant savings in terms of maintenance, as well as energy and consumables. Acerinox will improve its production equipment, offering products of higher quality and greater value to our end customers and providing significant reductions in the volume of emissions during the manufacturing process. This investment is part of the Strategic Plan of 2016-2020, to strengthen the activity of Acerinox in anticipation of new opportunities in emerging markets.
