US technological group Midrex has opened a London, UK office for administrative purposes.

The office, next to London Bridge, will be used to meet clients and to develop new projects.

Midrex director of corporate development John Kopfle told the Metal Bulletin/World Steel Dynamics Steel Survival Strategies conference in London in November the office was also close to the banking and financial offices of London’s Canary Wharf which provide the money for new projects.

It also brings Midrex closer to their Middle East clients for any meetings. Two people are based in the office which opened earlier in November but there is space for 12 people. It is expected to be formally opened in the new year.
