Outokumpu Experience – the most anticipated industry event of 2015 – is underway now in Berlin, Germany. Envisioning “a world that lasts forever”, the day-and-a-half event focuses on innovation, sustainability and advanced materials.
Packed with inspiring, informative presentations, Outokumpu Experience offers the nearly 500 guests from 50 nationalities an unparalleled opportunity to network, share and discover.
The first day of the event starts with a series of keynote presentations lead by Outokumpu President and CEO,
Mika Seitovirta. He says:
“At Outokumpu we are ambitious; we want to be better than our competitors on every front. We are working relentlessly to improve our profitability, even though it has required some very painful decisions – like the closure of Bochum here in Germany. But only by ensuring efficiency and competitiveness can we invest in our future – like we do in Krefeld, Germany, where we are investing over 100 million euros into our cold rolling operations and R&D.
For Outokumpu, customer focus is also about making it easy for you to do business. It’s about striving to be the preferred partner; the supplier who, all things being equal, you would rather work with. Another aspect of customer focus we want to excel in is making it easier for you to explore our offering. Helping you to understand the value we – and our products – can bring to your business.”
After his opening words, the spotlight belongs to guest speakers –
