ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik Servis Merkezi is one of the most technologically advanced steel service centres in Europe with a range of equipment that can process some of the toughest hot rolled steels on the market. Just three years after the joint venture was formed, the company has managed to capture a sizeable portion of the Turkish market for wear resistant grades such as Amstrong® Ultra and Relia®. And it’s not just down to their state-of-the-art equipment – ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik has a service philosophy to match!

ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik offers precision processing for UHSS and wear-resistant steels

The company is renowned for its customer-centric service philosophy. “We’re the service centre that doesn’t stop until we’re proud of what we do,” notes Igal Zakuto, Deputy CEO of ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik. “Customers are the sole reason we are here so we welcome them effusively, put them at the centre of everything, and make sure they are satisfied. We continue to invest in our state-of-the-art processing equipment and our people to meet those customer needs.”

Short lead time beats the competition

ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik also offers customers extremely short lead times for ultra high strength steels (UHSS) and wear-resistant grades. “Our competition offers a 10-week lead time, while our lead time can be as little as 24 hours if the material is in stock – and it usually is!” says Igal Zakuto.

ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik operates some of the most advanced steel processing equipment including the world’s strongest skin passing/temper mill line. That allows it to bend rolls in any direction – even ultra high strength steels (UHSS) in the Amstrong® Ultra range and tough wear-resistant grades from the Relia® family.

Early involvement ensures project success

With its strong focus on service, it’s no surprise that ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik’s customers get the company involved at an early stage of product design.

The ArcelorMittal RZK Çelik team can also help the customer define the correct steel thickness required for each part of the equipment they are making. “By selecting the right thickness, we can reduce the weight of the truck or earthmoving equipment and improve its efficiency,” says Faruk Kartal, sales manager for high added value (HAV) products. “With our experience and modelling tools, we are able to accurately specify the correct thickness for a long life.”

With its full range of processing equipment, extremely short lead times, and unparalleled customer service attitude, it’s no surprise that the company is quickly capturing market share from its competitors.
