Steps to Achieving Sustained Cost Reduction Model

This Integrated Steel Plant is the biggest single site of Steel production in the EU. Turnover reached 5 Billion Euros in 2007 with EBITDA of 700 million Euros. Production ranges from High Quality Steel Pipes API X 70 X 80, used for Submarine high pressure Gas transport, to the Automotive users such as FIAT, BMW and SEAT. Management effort to deal with all the operational procedures was massive and external support to identify areas of improvements was critical to success and to achieving profitability. To meet these challenges a highly experienced and motivated team was relocated to the plant with the objectives of identifying and streamlining critical aspects.

A complete turnaround of both the sales and procurement divisions of a major world steel producer.

A major European integrated steel plant wanted to redefine its growth strategy and reduce inefficiency. The overall objective was to develop both the strategy for increasing sales and for reducing inefficiency in procurement at a corporate level. Spending was spread across more than 20,000 suppliers. Purchasing decision makers were disorganised. The Sales division was operating inefficiently.

Cost reduction program and streamlining of operations for an integrated steel production unit in the European Union

The company was experiencing heavy losses after years of inefficient management. Despite having conducted numerous exercises in which expensive consultants were hired and their suggestions implemented, old habits soon returned and all of the savings benefits evaporated. A complete turnaround was required because the company’s survival was at risk. Poor industrial relations and a lack of motivation were holding back the company. We set an ambitious cost reduction target in excess of 150 Million Euros. The company’s revenue exceeds 3 Billion Euros.

A major re-vamp of two Converter Steel Shops for a steel company in Southern Europe

After many years of low capital investment, a significant project to invest in heavy equipment was required to reduce break-downs, lower maintenance costs, and improve quality. The new equipment had to be introduced into the plant without interrupting production. With more than 650 people employed on-site simultaneously, safety considerations were paramount. The main elements of the steel shop that were changed were eight Charging Cranes each weighing more than 500 tons, three continuous Slabs Casting Machines, and one new RH de-gassing plant.
