A dynamic steel market in the United States

For nearly two years, the US steel industry support policy has stimulated investments to modernize and increase steel production capacity in the United States.

Fives is taking full advantage of this situation. The Group has signed several contracts with the fast-growing Steel Dynamics. Following an order to modernize the second continuous galvanizing line (CGL2)

at the Colombus plant, the Group was chosen to design and supply a new continuous galvanizing line (CGL3) at the same site in Mississippi.
This new line is intended to produce 400,000 tons of steel per year for various markets, including the automotive industry. Fives also signed its first contract for a highly innovative ceramic coating line aimed at the construction and mass consumption markets.
