Higher demands for quality and technology
Customers are increasingly demanding premium or processed products rather than standard variants. Demands for technical performance are also rising.
This means it is increasingly important for the steel industry to be able to deliver advanced, customized solutions that have a positive impact on the customer’s business. Ovako produces and offers superior products with high strength and functionality tailored to customer needs. The company works continuously with product development to meet customer demand.
lower carbon footprint than the global average
Focus on sustainability and the circular economy
Demand for sustainable products is rising alongside increased customer awareness. The trend is moving toward a more circular economy, with used materials reused in a cycle. Steel is highly suitable for recycling because its properties remain equally good no matter how many times it is reused.
Ovako is one of the largest recyclers of steel scrap in the Nordics and is engaged in responsible business across the entire supply chain. The company is a steel industry leader in sustainability and in minimization of carbon emissions per metric ton of finished steel product, with the entire supply chain taken into account. Ovako is far below the global average for the carbon footprint of steel products.
