Published 2017-02-03

Ovako Metals Oy Ab, a sales and distribution company within the Ovako Group focused on the Finnish and Baltic markets, has launched a renewed service concept focused on engineering and stainless steel. At the same time the company will cut down on its carbon steel sheet and copper products warehousing offering.

“The Finnish and Baltic markets are very important for Ovako and our long-term strategy,” says Marcus Hedblom, CEO and President for Ovako. “Our refined business focus will enable us to create better and sustainable solutions for our customers in the region.”

"With our new strategy we will focus on customers in Finland and the Baltics who process not only engineering steel but also stainless steels. Within these product groups we aim to further strengthen our market position and customer service,” says Heikki Nyholm, President, Ovako Metals Oy Ab. ”With our product warehousing, preprocessing and logistics centralized at our modern distribution center in Tampere, and with our revitalized strategy we can streamline and boost our material handling processes with new and even better solutions for our customers.“  

Ovako produces engineering steel in Finland and in Sweden. It has the widest engineering steel offering on the market covering alloy and non-alloy engineering steels used in the mechanical engineering industry. The products are delivered as round and square bars, flat and hollow bars, rings and as hydraulic steels.
