Stalatube embarks on a new journey towards a world that is built to last. We, as one of the leading producers of sustainable stainless steel products, see it as our duty to steer industries to adopt more sustainable solutions. Our new strategy centers around developing highly sustainable high-strength stainless solutions, as well as increasing sustainability in our own actions and processes.
Stalatube aims to be the world’s leading manufacturer of high-strength stainless steel solutions. The new strategy pays particular attention to targeted product development by building a large range of highly sustainable high-strength products. We also invest in strengthening our Transport and Energy business areas and in developing their product offering, because we believe these industries benefit particularly from high-strength stainless solutions.
Our new high-strength solutions bring customers wide-spread added value, such as opportunities to design lighter and safer structures, to accumulate cost savings and to be more sustainable.
Everything is, of course, based on our long-lasting commitment to our customers. We continuously listen to our customers and optimize our product offering and stock availability to meet customer needs. This is already visible in our recently widened stock selection of large sizes of austenitic hollow sections. Not to mention our new widely usable high strength grades for austenitic, ferritic, and duplex products.
Our new high-strength solutions bring customers widespread added value, such as opportunities to design lighter and safer structures, accumulate cost savings, and be more sustainable. Our goal is that compared to the more traditional choices, our high-strength solution will always be a more ecological and sustainable choice for the customer.
Sustainability is the driving force and cornerstone of our new strategy. Our high-strength concept brings many ecological benefits through the extreme lightweight of the structures. For example, transport load is lower due to the lighter structural weight of the products, which means a lower carbon footprint for transportation. Products are highly corrosion- and fire-resistant; no coating with toxic paints is needed which means that there is no load of toxins or harmful substances on the environment. Products are 100% and endlessly recyclable and have a very long life cycle.
Another perspective is improving the sustainability of our own actions. Stalatube’s Energy Efficiency Program 2021 aims to increase the energy efficiency of our headquarters and main production facility in Lahti, Finland. The program is part of Stalatube’s continuous effort to increase the sustainability of our operations, products, and policies. One of the main priorities for the coming year regarding sustainability will be to optimize our operations to reduce total scrap to lighten our waste load and carbon footprint even further.
We work hard every day for a stronger and more sustainable world. We want to be the most reliable and responsible partner for our entire global network, starting with our employees. As a good employer Stalatube aims for a functional and efficient work community that also benefits the customer. Because together we are the strength that builds a better future.
