Many of us are familiar with sites where you can buy second-hand and almost new objects. Now ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products offers the same service for our non-prime steels.
Non-prime products are steel slabs or coils that are excess to requirements or which have small defects. Products available include:
You can even buy a slab that has not been allocated to a customer and ask us to roll it according to your specifications.
The items are identified by our Value Recovery Team and offered through SteelUser, ArcelorMittal’s omni-platform communication channel for customers. Some items are available through e-auctions, while others are sold at pre-defined prices through a coil shop.
Demand for our non-prime products is rising quickly as more customers become aware of this service. Non-prime gives you a great opportunity to obtain ArcelorMittal’s high-quality steels easily, quickly, and cost-effectively. The products are delivered using ArcelorMittal’s existing distribution network across Europe and can usually be shipped within two to three weeks.
Here is what one of our customers in Germany told us about non-prime: “SteelUser is a very comprehensive system with all kinds of useful information. The non-prime listings give us a clear picture of the available material. Everything is categorised using rules which are aligned across ArcelorMittal’s network of European mills so we can easily compare like-for-like. We are very satisfied with the service and pleased to have ArcelorMittal as our non-prime supplier!“
