AvestaPolarit revises organisational structure

In order to better align the AvestaPolarit organisational structure to the strategic business development framework, a decision has been made by the Executive Committee to reorganise the operations at the Avesta site in Sweden and also link the Sheffield melting shop to the Long Products business unit. This reorganisation will mean discontinuing the current Primary Products business unit. The operating units located in Avesta, namely the melting shop, hot-rolling mill, KBR and their central services will be combined to form a new business unit: Avesta Integrated Mill. Mr Ulf Öhnfeldt is appointed manager of the new business unit as Senior Vice President, Avesta Integrated Mill. He is currently Senior Vice President, Avesta KBR and Site Manager at Avesta.
The SMACC melting shop in Sheffield will be combined with Long Products, enlarging the current Long Products business unit. The main focus of SMACC will be to supply the Group’s own Long Products and Hot Rolled Plate operational units with high-quality billets and slabs respectively. In addition, a certain volume of slabs will be produced for the Group’s Coil Products business area and for external sale. The new appointments and business structure are valid as from 1 April 2002.
