Thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe GmbH has acquired Thyssen Ros Casares S.A. in southeastern Spain. The Krefeld-based processing specialist is systematically pursuing its growth strategy with the integration of the site in El Puig, which is now trading under the name Thyssenkrupp Materials Processing. Since spring, the Europe-wide service centre network has already been boosted by the addition of a new location in Györ, Hungary, and the stainless steel service centre in Willich, Germany.

Slit strip and blanks can be processed on three slitting and two cut-to-length lines at the site north of Valencia, which covers a total area of 39,000 m². The product range is tailored to individual customer wishes, comprising hot- and cold-rolled, coated carbon and stainless steels. Good logistical connections from the El Puig site guarantee quick access to key customer segments.

“We are delighted to be able to expand our European network with the El Puig site and offer our customers new options with a further presence in a promising market environment,” says Marcus Wöhl, CEO of Thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe.
