Epco is a global producer of sandwich panels for garage, commercial, and industrial doors. Formed in 2009, the company uses ArcelorMittal’s organic coated Granite® steels to create high-quality panels which are exported across Europe and around the globe. The success of Epco’s business relies on the company’s dedication to perfection at every step of production. That starts with the quality of the steel – a key reason for the close relationship between Epco and ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. But Epco also wants to be a leading example of sustainability in its sector. That’s why the company has decided to purchase XCarb® green steel certificates from ArcelorMittal.

Quality is a prime consideration for Epco when it comes to choosing a steel partner

Partners for life

“The long-term partnership with ArcelorMittal has brought Epco many advantages,” notes Luc De Deygere, CEO of Epco. “Instead of switching supplier frequently in search of the lowest price, we have opted for a challenging relationship with the supplier we trust for quality, consistency, their willingness to innovate, and their ability to ensure our supply chain never runs dry. In return, we get all the support we need, even while using the product. And we are in frequent contact about new ideas and opportunities.”

Steel quality a key consideration

Quality is an important consideration when it comes to choosing materials. Epco’s panels are typically used on the exteriors of homes, commercial buildings, or industrial premises and the large expanse of the door means that every flaw in a panel is highly visible. And the steel must resist corrosion – whatever the environment.

Greener production routes

Epco is very aware of the need to continue its active role in helping the world to reduce carbon emissions as Luc De Deygere explains: “As a business, Epco has already taken action to reduce our carbon footprint. But we need to do more. That’s why we have decided to purchase ArcelorMittal’s XCarb® green steel certificates. We hope they will help to motivate our customers to follow greener production routes.”
