BlueScope (ASX:BSL) Forms Technical Alliance with Nippon Steel (TYO:5401)
This agreement is the first step toward introducing the next generation of coated steel technology and the new technologies will enable BlueScope to offer superior performing products, especially for building and construction markets, said Paul O'Malley, BlueScope's Managing Director and CEO.
The products will be launched initially in Australia and then rolled out across the company's global footprint. The new technology will not only improve corrosion performance but will also substantially improve the environmental credentials of these products.
