First pickled coils were delivered to clients on early days of October.
Leon Coated Solutions has started industrial production at its pickling facilities in Villadangos del Páramo, its new pickling line. The factory, which will be the one to provide to the Iberian market, invoiced in October the first pickled coils produced on this town of Leon.
The first coils made by this pickling line, which counts with Belgian technology, and the 25.000 Tons of hot roll coils stored in Leon, set the start point of this new Leon Coated industrial project, which also includes a cold rolling line and a galvanizing line.
The new Leon Coated industrial project will count, in the future, with a railway line to connect the factory with the Villadangos industrial zone, improving logistics’ efficiency of the plant. In short term, León Coated will start operations of an acid recycling plant. This investment improves the production process in environmental terms, aligned with sustainability commitments of the steelmaker group.
