The new rolling mill worth almost 100 mio. Euro is inaugurated today in the Danish town of Frederiksværk in the presence of the Russian Minister of transport, Maksim Sokolov, and the Danish Minister for Trade and Investment, Pia Olsen Dyhr.
NLMK DanSteel A/S has been Russian-owned since 2002 and this new investment is made to ensure competitiveness through high quality, larger capacity and a wider product range. The project worth 100 million Euro started in August 2012 as a part of the company’s strategy to leverage its strong position in the plate markets. The ambition is to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for businesses within growing sectors like the offshore wind industry.
DanSteel is part of a European division, NLMK Europe Plate, and The Danish Minister for Trade and Investment welcomes NLMK’s decision of placing the investment Denmark in front of other European locations:
- “I am glad to see how our geographic location, our infrastructure and skilled workers are decisive arguments for foreign investors like NLMK.”
- “With the new investment, DanSteel will intensify their focus on strong Danish sectors like offshore wind and maritime, and I am sure that this will be of mutual benefit to both DanSteel and the Danish value chain within these sectors.”
