Automazioni Industriali Capitanio will supply completely renovated electrical and automation equipment for the new Mescier Section Mill at Karabük in Turkey. The project will relocate an AIC plant installed for a different customer in Turkey in 2005, adding to the other two rolling mills already operating at the site.
