Following the announcement of Liberty House’s binding offer to acquire the Galati Steelworks in Romania from ArcelorMittal, Jon Bolton CEO for Liberty Steel met with Viorel Stefan the Vice Prime Minister on Thursday, 25th October, in Bucharest.

A team from Liberty House had spent the day meeting with the leadership team and trade union representatives at Galati describing plans to grow production output from Galati by 1m tonnes by the year 2021 / 2022 and their intention to invest in the primary and rolling facilities at the plant.

Mr Bolton explored with Mr Stefan the additional opportunities that arise from working with the Romanian Government to support ambitious plans to grow and invest in the country’s infrastructure.

These opportunities include the potential to further grow output from the plant but also to invest in education, research and design as well as exploring the potential for manufacturing new high value steel products.

Liberty currently manufactures products that could be added to the Galati offering and support the current Romanian development plans. These include oil and gas pipelines, rail and speciality steels that Liberty supplies to the aerospace and defence industries.

In addition, the potential to engage with the wider interests of the GFG alliance were explored. These include financial services, energy and infrastructure and property. The role of the GFG Foundation in encouraging and supporting the promotion of industrial careers to young people was also discussed.

Liberty House values the relationship with the Romanian government and look forward to working with them in the future. The completing of the acquisition of the divestment package (comprising Ostrava, Galati, Skopje and Piombino) is subject to the completion of AM’s acquisition of Ilva, and conditional on EU approval and the conclusion of information consultations with local and European Works Councils.

"Scopul și provocarea majoră pe care am avut-o în 2018 a fost informarea corectă și educarea clienților, deoarece în România încă se fac multe improvizații în acest domeniu. Vrem să continuăm să specializăm meseriași în acest domeniu."
