On Thursday 19th January we had the pleasure to have as our guests Uddeholm’s top management, from the historic Swedish steel company with which we have been collaborating for a long time and of which Steel Acciai Speciali has been the exclusive dealer for north-eastern Italy since 1981.
With Pär Emanuelsson, Managing Director, and Karoline Spångberg, Vice President Marketing and Sales, accompanied by Luca Comerio, Sales Manager for Italy, we talked mainly about the stimulating challenges that lie ahead in the coming years.
Future strategies were shared and Uddeholm’s main objective was made clear: to aspire, in the medium term, to global leadership in the production of steels for industrial tools.
During the meeting, particular attention was also given to the environmental matter: in fact, after having already reduced CO2 emissions by 46% compared to 1990, the Swedish steel company has expressed its intention to continue investing in sustainable technologies, using clean electricity and making its steel with recycled materials, with the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2040.
In fact, by implementing this policy, Uddeholm aims to produce more and better steel, but also to do it in an eco-sustainable way, respecting fundamental human rights and providing the community with resources and services while respecting the environment.
Collaborating with a major player that pursues a virtuous growth model with commitment and concreteness, and that chooses its partners also on the basis of adherence to the same system of values, is a source of pride for us. Forty-two years of trust from a company of this caliber represent an important result, the basis on which to build a future full of satisfactions.
