The investment also incorporates significant technical updates to Galati's Galvanizing Line, to ensure an excellent underlying substrate for the coating line.
With a capacity of up to 90,000 tons per year, the new Organic Coating Line will supply Romania's domestic market which is currently dominated by imports, but shows growth potential. The line produces strips in a wide range of thicknesses and widths, with single and double-sided coatings of various depths and finishes, to satisfy customer expectations for products such as: roofing, drainage systems, sandwich panels and industrial coolers, to name a few.
“We are proud to open a totally-new industrial activity in our unit, which will deliver high-added value products. This shows ArcelorMittal's commitment to Galati and to Romania”, said Bruno Ribo, Chief Executive Officer of ArcelorMittal Galati – Skopje.
