New home for premium cut-to-length sheets
Through an organizational realignment, thyssenkrupp Steel is paving the way to a successful future for its cut-to-length sheet products. In the future the cold-forming grades of the perform® range, the wear-resistant grades of the XAR® brand and several other special grades such as TBL will be marketed by the Industry business unit to provide even better customer support.
The coils will continue to be produced in Duisburg, while cutting to length will be done at our Antwerp facility.
Going forward, thyssenkrupp Steel’s cut-to-length sheet customers will be able to obtain the full portfolio of hot-rolled steels from a single source – thanks to a sales restructure transferring our cut-to-length plate products to the Industry business unit. A new team from the Industry business unit, headed by the experienced sales manager Mario Klatt, is now responsible for sales and customer support.
With these measures, thyssenkrupp Steel is sending a clear signal: Wear-resistant, high-strength cut-to-length sheet remains very much part of the company and is as important as ever. The organizational integration of these products underlines the company’s goal of providing a high-quality product portfolio backed by comprehensive materials support.
As a competent provider of premium cut-to-length plate, thyssenkrupp Steel has modified its strategy in response to current market requirements. That includes providing even stronger support to customers in developing customized products and applications. As an experienced materials technology partner, the Industry business unit headed by CEO Jörg Paffrath will continue to apply the full range of its expertise to offering innovative and custom solutions – now also for cut-to-length sheet.

The coils are processed on our state-of-the-art cut-to-length line in Antwerp. There, in the heart of Europe, hot-rolled coils are cut into wear-resistant and high-strength plate. The line is one of the most efficient of its kind and one of very few in Europe capable of producing premium cut-to-length sheet of the very highest quality.
