LIBERTY Steel Group has allocated €5.5 million towards the consolidation and automation of the LIBERTY Galați Hot Strip Mill, which this year celebrates half a century of continuous activity.
In November, LIBERTY Galați carried out comprehensive works to consolidate the production line and implement automation projects.

The projects will also better integrate technical and operational decisions, improve the quality of the coils and strengthen safety processes.
Prasanta Mishra, Executive Director of LBERTY Galați said: “2021 is the first year we have been really able to see the impact of the modernisation and operational efficiency. The Hot Strip Mill team’s results prove their commitment to deliver both the quality and volumes demanded by customers. We are proud to be celebrating the mill’s half a century of continuous activity with such positive results. Looking forward, LIBERTY Galați aims to invest in sustainability and digitization and in our team’s upskilling because it is the people who have built the company over the last 50 years, and it is they who will help transform it into a company of the future.”
