This year, ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Karviná, a leading European supplier of profiles and tubes, is investing tens of millions of crowns in the Czech Republic to increase the efficiency of production facilities, automate production or reduce the energy consumption of buildings. The suppliers of the investment projects should be mainly Czech companies.

In 2023, ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Karviná plans to invest approximately 15% more in 15 investment projects than in 2022. "All these investments, on the one hand in the development of production and the other hand in the reduction of energy intensity of production, are an important step in the current very turbulent times to improve the company's competitiveness on the European market," says René Fabik, CEO of ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Karviná.

The Karviná production plant expects that the implementation of the investment projects will increase the efficiency of production lines, automation of other production processes, savings in energy costs or increase the safety level. The investments are also expected to contribute to shorter delivery times for customers and an expanded product portfolio.

The most prominent projects for JÄKL in Karviná this year are the automation of packaging on two production lines and the decentralisation of heating in the company's premises. This project should bring significant savings in natural gas consumption.

Other investment projects in 2023 include the automation of the production line outlet, new rolling stands for one production line, a new stacking robot, the reconstruction of the roofs of the production areas, safety measures in the paint shop area and much more.

"In the long term, we prefer Czech suppliers, so we will try to demand services and products mainly from domestic companies for our investment projects," adds René Fabik.
