Heckett receives service contract from Arcelor

Harsco Corp. has announced that its Heckett MultiServ mill services division has been awarded additional service responsibilities at Arcelor’s Sidmar steel works in Belgium under two new multi-year contracts. Arcelor is one of Heckett MultiServ’s largest customers, comprising a range of services at 26 Arcelor-owned mills throughout Europe. Heckett MultiServ’s support of the Sidmar works began in 1981 with the introduction of scarfing services and has since grown to include scrap oxy-cutting, steel slab management, transport and handling, and steel coil and roll transport. Under the latest contracts, which average nearly seven years in duration, Heckett MultiServ is assuming added responsibilities for slag pot carrying, metal recovery, and other related services, while also expanding the scope of its existing services for on-site scrap management and handling in support of Sidmar’s plans for increased steel production. The contracts, both underway, are forecast to generate positive Economic Value Added (EVA®) from their first year of operation.
