“We’re constantly striving to offer the best solutions for our customers. Customer feedback inspired us to rearrange our products according to performance characteristics rather than their chemical composition and so create an easier way for customers to explore our comprehensive portfolio. Our new categorization will make it easier for the customer to assess and select the optimum product,” said Mr Suri.
“Outokumpu’s new portfolio structure features nine product ranges, which highlight the key properties of their respective products such as corrosion-resistance, heat-resistance, strength, hardness and machinability. Exhibiting and presenting at Chemtech Gujarat 2016 Outokumpu will take the opportunity to propagate messages about sustainable solutions provided by the Group’s specialty stainless steels.
