Corus production line starts up

Corus, the British-Dutch worldwide steel group, has launched a new, high-technology “CALP” production line at its facility in Duffel, near Antwerp.

The production line, an investment of some 55 million euro, is to make aluminum components for the automotive sector. “CALP” means continuous annealing line with pre-treatment.

Aluminum components for cars and other vehicles are in increasing demand in order to lighten the vehicles and decrease fuel consumption. There is also a recycling advantage.

Corus Aluminium in Duffel currently employs 1,480 people, with 60 added last year in preparation for the new line. The company considers production will increase by some 20% over the coming four years.
