Chairman Marcegaglia: our company grew more than Italy

Interviewed by “In Magazine Premium”, Chairman and CEO Antonio Marcegaglia analysed the current sector and group economy: “After five difficult years, from 2016 we can finally talk about the recovery of the European steel industry, also thanks to the recovery of raw materials prices. In any case, our company has grown more than Italy and, as it is our custom, we have always been able to reinvest all the profits into the core business of the company. The goal of 2017 is to exceed five billion euros in sales. Looking ahead, the biggest opportunities are mostly related to acquisitions and aggregations”.
He also spoke about Ilva: “Being side by side with the biggest European and world player has been strategic for winning the duel against AcciaItalia. With the acquisition of Ilva, our historic supplier, we will certainly have greater stability and we will be able to improve the organization and management of the market”.
Finally, a look at Marcegaglia’s production facilities in Emilia Romagna: “The metal-steel plant in Ravenna is the most important one of the group. Equipped with the largest service centre in Europe, it has many high-tech systems and production capacity for pickling, cold rolling, galvanizing, annealing, skid pass and coils pre-painting. The plant of Forlì is the largest in the world for the production of stainless steel tubes and is part of the production network of Marcegaglia Specialties, which has eight plants in the world for this sector”.
