Active collaboration to serve end customers - High quality tubes speed up the production

SSAB has been collaborating with Ateno for Tubular products since 2014. Over the years, delivery volumes have grown significantly and collaboration has deepened. SSAB currently supplies both hollow sections and precision tubes from tube mills. Products from precision tubes are further processed for use in, for example, mechanical engineering and the furniture industry. Parts of hollow sections are processed into parts of transport and steel construction. Ateno also makes forest machine parts from high-strength steels. In addition to tubular products, SSAB also supplies significant quantities of sheet and profile products to Ateno.

Frame structures of Best-Hall’s building

Superior weldability and produced-to-length deliveries from mill – When highest quality and production efficiency is required

SSAB delivers structural hollow sections to the frame structures of Best-Hall’s buildings. One of the recent projects was Duodot. SSAB delivered over 100 tons of structural hollow sections to the Duodot project for steel frame warehouse building in southwestern Finland. Best-Hall built a logistic warehouse building for its customer for storing tires. The building is a combination of two halls, one part is 87 meters long, 44 meters wide, and the height is 9 meters from the lowest point. The other part is 132 meters long, 33 meters wide and 9 meters high.
