thyssenkrupp Aerospace and Swiss Steel Group forge green plans
When an aircraft takes to the skies in the future, it's quite possible that "green steel" from the Swiss Steel Group will be part of it. Because from next year the Swiss Steel Group will supply only green steel to thyssenkrupp Aerospace, a supplier to the world's leading aerospace companies and a thyssenkrupp Materials Services company. From 2023 the Swiss Steel Group will supply thyssenkrupp Aerospace with green forged and rolled bright and bar steel. The production process for this material is particularly environmentally friendly, with emissions 80 to 95 percent below the industry average.
As well as aiming to make its own operations climate-neutral from 2030, thyssenkrupp Materials Services also supports its customers in decarbonizing their supply chains. Green products and services are essential and support the ambition of the largest mill-independent materials distributor and service provider in the western world to also become an industry leader in sustainability. Patrick Marous, CEO of thyssenkrupp Aerospace: "We are seeing an increasing demand for CO2-reduced materials from our customers. The aerospace industry in particular is heavily involved in the topic. We are therefore pleased to be able to serve this need together with a long-standing partner."
Commenting on this green collaboration, Frank Koch, CEO of the Swiss Steel Group, said: "This agreement is another highlight in our previous collaboration with the thyssenkrupp Group. We have known and appreciated each other for years and are looking forward to a common "Green Future"!
The intention of both partners is to further expand the relationship and include other business areas where appropriate.
As one of the world's leading service providers in the market for raw materials, processing services and the management of complex supply chains, thyssenkrupp Aerospace supplies the required materials just-in-time, cut and machined exactly to customer specifications. The aim is for customers to be able to concentrate fully on their core business. The company has a global network of 21 countries.
