For Turkish manufacturer MMS Modüler, aesthetic steels from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products are the ideal material for the interior and exterior finishes of its prefabricated and mobile units. With innovation being key to the company, MMS Modüler takes maximum advantage of ArcelorMittal’s very diverse range.

Unlike other companies active in the modular sector, MMS Modüler has its own team of architects who design each project. “We don’t really have much ‘standard’ production,” notes chief operating officer Tuğsen Aly. “We started to integrate ArcelorMittal’s coated steels as a cladding material about three years ago and this was an important innovation. Aesthetically it looks good and there are lots of colour options, it’s an easy material to work with and doesn’t need a lot of manpower.”

Exterior finishes generate positive feedback

For exteriors, MMS Modüler typically utilise ArcelorMittal products such as Aluzinc® Florelis, Granite® Impression Agate, Granite® Impression Wood and Granite® Silky Mat.
Xcellook®, the cost-effective alternative to stainless steel, is used for interiors. “We are getting very positive feedback from our customers on these materials,” says Ali Osman Kavakdan, CEO of MMS Modüler.

The ArcelorMittal brand is a selling point, notes Ali Osman Kavakdan: “ArcelorMittal is a well-known and reliable company in Turkey and our other major markets including Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. When we mention we are using products from ArcelorMittal to our customers, it makes our hand stronger.”

“ArcelorMittal was very supportive when we integrated their coated steels into our systems,” says Ali Osman Kavakdan. “Our contacts at ArcelorMittal are always helpful and provide excellent technical advice when we have an issue. They keep us updated about the latest developments and products.”

MMS Modüler is also looking at additional applications for steel in its buildings. “Our technical team is assessing ArcelorMittal’s products for roofing and guttering,” says Tuğsen Aly. “We currently use roof tiles or sandwich panels, but steel could be a lighter solution.”
