A new name for our Group: Swiss Steel Group

Our Group will operate under the new name of Swiss Steel Group. Together we are designing even better steel solutions with highest quality and profound passion. Steel is our backbone, our DNA. Thus, it is our best contribution to a sustainable future. We are teaming up with each other, with customers and suppliers to achieve just that. Together, we develop and produce innovative solutions by making use of our expertise as an experienced ally. “The new name Swiss Steel Group embodies the vision and values of the Group. After this turbulent year it was time for a change in many aspects and it is the time to use the momentum to change name”, reports Chairman Jens Alder. The change of name to Swiss Steel Holding AG was accepted by the shareholders with a 97.92 % of the votes represented. Affected by the rebranding are those Business Units that had SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH in their name. Other Business Units, including Ascometal, do not undergo any changes as regards their name, however, in future they will each be called a “Member of Swiss Steel Group” and own a new logo. We are looking forward to our journey with you. Together. For a future that matters.

A new Electric Arc Furnace for the steel shop of Hagondange mill

During the 2019 summer break, Ascometal successfully modernized the EAF of its Hagondange plant. The steel shop is well known for its vertical bloom caster, which has been an acknowledged competitive advantage for years in the automotive segment. The new EAF and smokes capitation system will improve reliability and productivity of the furnace, reduce energy consumption and reduce CO2 and dust emissions The furnace itself is now slightly narrower but higher and new injection devices for oxygen and carbon are added in order to better mix the influx and optimize thermodynamics. Last but not least, the user-friendly interface has been improved, allowing and easier and more precise monitoring of the EAF. Pierre Frentzel – CEO of Ascometal – declares: “this is a great and decisive move for our Hagondange mill. We now have a new EAF with better design and best technologies available. This clearly puts us in the best conditions to service the demanding automotive related sectors”. Customers who visited the new equipment were positively impressed by the new set-up.
