"Suppliers to the automotive industry have to follow the ambitious plans that progressive car makers have set out.''Stephan Flapper, head of commercial, H2 Green Steel.
"Suppliers to the automotive industry have to follow the ambitious plans that progressive car makers have set out. However, we also have a group of companies that run before the rest as they follow their own compass. KIRCHHOFF Automotive is one such company. They combine their impressive legacy with a strong direction for the future where sustainable products are as much a competitive edge, as they are important for the climate and sustainability targets”, commented Stephan Flapper, head of commercial, H2 Green Steel.
The two companies will also work together on a circularity initiative where the aim is to send at least 30% of the steel scrap volumes back to H2 Green Steel's electric arc furnaces in Boden for recycling.
