Thyssenkrupp, Tata sign deal to become Europe’s second biggest steelmaker

AFP

German industrial giant Thyssenkrupp said Friday it had finally agreed the merger of its steelmaking business with India’s Tata, making the merged firm Europe’s second biggest steelmaker, reports AFP from Frankfurt Am Main.

Conceived to take on the flood of cheap Chinese steel unbalancing world markets, the merged firm known as “Thyssenkrupp Tata Steel” will be based in the Netherlands. It will be second only to ArcelorMittal in the European steel industry.

Thyssenkrupp’s executive and supervisory boards agreed to “create a 50/50 joint venture, which will combine the European steel

businesses of Thyssenkrupp and Tata Steel”, the Essen-based group said in a statement.

Final signatures would follow “shortly”, it added, while competition authorities in the European Union and other jurisdictions must still give the go-ahead.

Bosses hope the tie-up, which took more than two years to negotiate, will create between 400 and 500 million euros ($468-585 million) per year in savings.

The merged firm will boast 48,000 employees spread around 34 sites, producing around 21 million tonnes of steel per year for revenues of around 15 billion euros.

Thyssenkrupp and Tata previously warned that the merger would mean around 4,000 jobs will be slashed in both production and administration, split evenly between the two firms.
