Major investments, continued focus on customers and sustainability will be the topics for Tata Steel at this year’s Wire & Tube fair – the first since 2018 following the coronavirus pandemic.
For Tata Steel the prestigious event in Dusseldorf, Germany, is a chance to meet and greet customers old and new in person. It will also be a chance to showcase some major investments including a completely new mill at the company’s Corby site and a new slitter at the Hartlepool site – both in the UK. Also on show will be the latest product developments including high strength steels and new internal coatings for Contiflo precision tubes.
With a range of advanced hot-finished and cold-formed tube products, Tata Steel’s strong commitment to sustainability and customer-focused service offering means the company can help customers succeed in their markets.
This event brings together the full tube portfolio from Tata Steel, manufactured to the highest standards of quality and sustainability in both the UK and the Netherlands.
Anil Jhanji, Chief Commercial Officer for Tata Steel UK, said: “After the last few years, we are really looking forward to this opportunity to connect with so many customers in one place and showcase our broad tube portfolio.”
Meanwhile, Jacob Gerkema, Managing Director for Tata Steel Tubes in the Netherlands, said: “The combined offering of tube products from Tata Steel makes us a leader in steel tubes, while our integrated supply chains ensure responsibility and sustainability are at the core of our offering.”
Tata Steel tube products are used across a broad range of industries, including construction, machinery fabrication, energy and automotive. For example, Automotive manufacturers profit from the advanced high strength precision tube offerings which can significantly reduce weight and cost, enabling the design of next generation headrests, twist-beams, chassis structures or instrument panel beams.
Tony Waite, Tata Steel Director of Sales Tubes & Engineering, said: “We are making major investments to further strengthen our Tubes business and, as we come out of the coronavirus pandemic, I look forward to meeting all our customers to demonstrate how we can help them succeed in their markets.”
Tube products from Tata Steel are also at the heart of the Energy Transition, from efficient HFI pipe to support ongoing oil & gas demand, through to pipes tested for hydrogen compatibility and carbon capture as well as supporting the physical infrastructure with structural products used in offshore wind and solar energy generation.
Tata Steel continues to be a leader in Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) with specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for many of our tube products.
Tata Steel is considered one of the pioneers of the EPD programme and was awarded a prestigious Steelie from the World Steel Association. Tata Steel is also the first steel tube manufacturer to certify all its operations to the BES 6001 international standard for responsible sourcing in the construction industry.
Potential clients are welcome to find out more about Tata Steel’s future plans and talk to the company’s experts at the Tube fair in Dusseldorf between 20 and 24 June – Stand B47 in Hall 3.
