As a member of Internal and External Communications I’m constantly on the look out for reports and projects relating to the Business Area Materials Services. The playing field is vast. With 500 branches in 44 countries we’re a successful player in the global market for production and raw materials while supporting production and manufacturing companies with a host of innovative services. Also included in our broad lineup is the production of specialty and stainless steels as well as other high-performance materials. My interests besides materials, services and global projects? Handball, skiing, basketball, audio books, and the 1. FC Köln soccer team.
