Sverdrup Steel is strengthening its presence in Germany

Posted in News

Sverdrup Steel now hold a vast stock range of coil, plate and round bar throughout Europe and in Korea. This along with our highly qualified metallurgists, knowledgeable sales team and our strong supply chain partners has made us a global provider within the special steel grades segment.

Sverdrup Steel is winning more business from our existing customers and rapidly winning the trust of new customers all over the globe. Becoming the preferred partner for a large number of customers for special steel grades material.

Germany is an important market for us in Europe. We have built a strong stock of coil and plate in Burg over the last few years. This allows us in partnership with ESC Burg to deliver cut to length plates, standard formats and a range of profiles on short delivery times. Logistically Burg is in a strong geographical position as it has easy access to transport by road, air and sea.

In 2019 we are increasing the volumes of stock at this location. The alloys we stock in Burg are: LDX 2101, EDX 2304, Duplex 1.4462, Super Duplex 1.4410, 6Mo 1.4547 and Nickel Alloy 31.

This increase is based on the positive response we have had in the German market.

“We are attracting new customers in the market at such a pace that we now feel the timing is right to expand our team with a sales resource in the German market”, says Sales Director Export, Mr Erik Sandell. It is Mr. Sandell who is heading up Sverdrup Steels international expansion and the strategy that has been defined.

“Sverdrup Steels growth has been achieved through building sustainable organic growth, increased stock levels as well as the competence of our sales and metallurgical teams.

This allows us to support our customers with short lead times, to solve challenges about material choice, availability, specifications etc. To ensure on time deliveries combined with competitive prices and top quality.” COO Mr. Knut Tore Erevik elaborates.

Sverdrup Steel is looking to add to our team with someone who has experience in our product range and knowledge of end users in the German market.

This employee will be responsible for meeting our strategy and achieving the goals and objectives for the German end user market.

We will introduce them to the Sverdrup Steel values and our way of conducting sales. We will agree a time line for when milestones should be reached.

As you would expect from a group like Sverdrup we will continuously provide the support needed in order to succeed with these objectives.

Sverdrup Steel is awarded: Business Sucsess of The Year

Posted in News

This year we got to bring the gilded bore crown home to our fantastic team at Sverdrup Steel. Every last one of our employees has contributed to the performance of 2018 that earned Sverdrup Steel the award for Business Success of the Year. So we would like thank all of our dedicated staff in the Sverdrup Steel Group. It is both an honor and an exciting experience to receive such a recognition amongst so many strong candidates.

The recognitions serves as a motivation going forward in 2019, a year that is shaping up to be another record breaking year for Sverdrup Steel. With this continuous rapid growth we know we will face some challenges, and we know new opportunities will be presented. With our strong team displaying the same level of effort and efficiency. Coupled with strong partners on the supply side we are confident that the challenges will be overcome and the opportunities will be turned in to new long term business relations.

Here is the reasoning of the Jury: Business Success of the Year

“The winner of the Gullkronen 2019 Business Success Award proves that belief in your own abilities and investment during downturns hold great value. At the heel of the industry cycle, the company took great risk doubling down on its core oil & gas offering as it expanded its presence in the highly competitive South Korean market. “Steeling” the show, the company’s revenues broke the 1 billion kroner ceiling in 2018 off the back of an unprecedented 70% growth year-on-year.

The winner continues to perform exceptionally, with 2019 slated to become another all-time-high. Truly the alchemist of the oil & gas service industry, the company turns steel into gold.”
