“Strenx steel improves the quality of our products. By making vehicles out of SSAB’s high-strength steel I think we will be able to knock out more excessive weight and continue to achieve even more innovative designs,” said Soo-jeong Lee.
Horyong Sales Manager Park Cheol agrees that the lightweight, yet high-strength steel from SSAB will help the company to innovate new and better products.
“We use SSAB’s Strenx steel plates to be able to follow the current global trend, which is making equipment light-weight. I think that this is something we can utilize in the future in the market for heavy operations, to reduce weight and achieve even more efficient work,” he said.
Park Cheol feels that the partnership between SSAB and Horyong is a win-win relationship.
“We are manufacturing specialty purpose vehicles and the Strenx performance steel is the perfect fit for these challenging jobs. In addition, I think SSAB contributes greatly in the development of our commodities. As we are part of the My Inner Strenx program, SSAB provides us with extensive and prioritized support on the technicalities of the steel plates so we learn more about how we can use them, and consequently develop new products. I'm sure that this collaboration is going to continue to bring us even better results in the future,” he said.
