Tag: Wolfgang Eder
The groundbreaking ceremony marked the official start of the three-year construction phase for the new voestalpine special steel plant in Kapfenberg, Austria.
For voestalpine, aerospace is a key strategic growth area, and is therefore a high priority in the coming years. In the next two years voestalpine will invest over EUR 40M in a new high-tech, high-speed forging line at Group company Böhler Edelstahl GmbH & Co KG in Kapfenberg in order to literally give additional thrust to this growth.
The voestalpine Group is continuing its global drive to innovate in the field of pioneering technologies: a new research and development center for 3D printing of metal parts was recently opened at the voestalpine site in Düsseldorf.
Wolfgang Eder, chairman of the Management Board of voestalpine AG, will remain chairman of the World Steel Association until October 2016.
