AvestaPolarit will proceed with a reconditioning of its first stainless steel melting shop in Tornio, now that the new melting shop has been started up.
AvestaPolarit's net sales and operating profit for the financial year were up compared to 2001, as a result of higher prices and delivery volumes.
Under the Water Industry Acts of 1989 and 1991, the UK government has power to regulate the substances, products and processes used in the treatment and provision of public water supplies.
AvestaPolarit has announced several new appointments at its corporate centre, including changes in responsibilities.
The British Stainless Steel Association (BSSA) and some of its members have assisted in the creation ofa stainless steel sculpture which is now scheduled for a permanent siting on Salford Quays opposite the Lowry Gallery, Salford, UK.
Mr Antti Pihko has been appointed new manager for AvestaPolarit's Ferrochrome business unit, as Senior Vice President – Ferrochrome, with effect from 1 January 2003.
