The Alfa Acciai Group, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of reinforcing steel and wire rod for almost 70 years, has now become a benchmark in terms of cutting-edge technology and environmental awareness throughout the entire steel supply chain.
The Group, which is controlled by Siderurgica Investimenti holding, features high industrial flexibility and maximum operational efficiency upstream and downstream the smelting process, alongside a sound financial position and assets. These characteristics enable the Group to successfully respond to changes in the domestic and foreign steel markets and the increasing awareness of citizens regarding environmental issues, by keeping the same constant focus as Alfa Acciai has reserved to its customers for almost seven decades.
Alfa Acciai started producing steel in Brescia in the mid-1950s. As a result of ongoing growth policy and several acquisitions, the Group’s annual production capacity of steel and long products totals 2.5 million tonnes, with more than 1,200-strong workforce, ranking at the top of market players in the industry.
The main production sites that guarantee a widespread and rapid service in the domestic and neighbouring markets are the Brescia-based Alfa Acciai, one of Italy’s largest EAF steel mills, the Catania-based Acciaierie di Sicilia, which is among Sicily’s main industrial manufacturing complex and the only steel mill on the island, with a strong vocation for exports thanks to nearby major port infrastructures, Ferroberica, the leading Italian company in Italy and the second in Europe for pre-shaping and assembling reinforcing steel for structural works in the production sites of Vicenza, Catania, Udine and Montirone and, last but not least, the Brescia-based Tecnofil, one of Europe’s leading drawing mills completes the downstream production of wire rod.
Customer satisfaction, the creation of value added, focus on social responsibility, ongoing plant and business innovation are the guidelines marking a path to increased growth which, as a result of strong investments, high managerial skills and well-proven know-how, make the Alfa Acciai Group a benchmark in circular economy, which is highly appreciated by institutional stakeholders.
