Gaussin becomes an essential player in the handling of steel loads
A rapidly growing market, for the first time in 2004 world steel production exceeded the billion tonne barrier. In this context of sustained growth, GAUSSIN is offering its steel load handling and logistics flow processing solutions throughout the world.
Steel production is mainly concentrated in Asian countries, which driven by strong internal growth, are also major consumers (47% of production, 50% of consumption). China alone represents more than a quarter of production. This is where GAUSSIN’s principal customers are found: Arcelor, Mittal Steel, Thyssen, Vallourec, BAO Steel.
Indeed, GAUSSINS handling vehicles are particularly suited to the difficult environment presented by iron and steel (temperature, corrosion, etc.) where they set the standard with these leading groups.
