A leading materials supplier and supply chain solutions provider – thyssenkrupp Materials UK, advises that raw material prices and lead-times are changing frequently due to macroeconomic developments and geopolitical disruptions.
thyssenkrupp Aerospace has signed a new multi-year agreement to provide supply chain management solutions to Airbus Atlantic. This agreement is an extension of the partnership the two companies have already had since 2010.
thyssenkrupp Materials UK has partnered with one of the world’s leading suppliers of pre-anodised material and is now offering continuous anodising on flat rolled aluminium products, whilst still in coil form, alongside a convenient de-coiling to size service.
thyssenkrupp’s long involvement with the materials sector has been shaped largely by technological developments and structural change. In more recent times, the company has focused on digital transformation – part of which is the announcement of a new e-commerce platform in the UK, Steelbay Exchange.
thyssenkrupp’s newly opened TechCenter Additive Manufacturing in Germany has now started making customized products from metals and plastics in a single digital process. This has been opened with the aim to industrialize the 3D printing process.
A £4 million investment programme at Vetchberry Steels, the coil processing division of thyssenkrupp Materials (UK), a subsidiary of thyssenkrupp AG, is reaching maturity at a pivotal point for its manufacturing customers in the UK, who can now look forward to the opportunities which a more competitive currency may present.
