Eurometal reported that Italian re-roller Marcegaglia has purchased the production assets of German company Rudolf Flender Rohr GmbH. Four tube mills are installed at the Flender plant in North Rhine-Westphalia, producing round and shaped tubes in carbon and stainless steel for mechanical engineering, oil and gas and power generation. Their total capacity is up to 150 thousand tons per year. Marcegaglia intends to relocate them to its headquarters in Gazoldo degli Ippoliti in northern Italy, in order to widen its product range.
Over the coming six months Marcegaglia will dismantle and revamp the five lines and re install them at the Gazoldo degli Ippoliti site, completing and boosting product range. Works will be completed by 2022.
