Belgian VM Steel, Moroccan K-3S & T companies set up joint entity
VM Steel, a Belgian stock-listed exporter of a wide range of steel products has launched, in partnership with Moroccan K-3S & T, a subsidiary, VM Steel Maroc, in Morocco from where it aims to conquer the African continent.
The subsidiary is the first international branch of the Belgian steel giant which is thus gaining foothold in Morocco to supply specialized metallurgical products, with the ambition to become for its customers “the benchmark in terms of supply in steel products,” announced VM Steel Maroc, in a press release.
“VM Steel started its commercial activity in Morocco in the 90s, and it is a logical continuation for the company to make this investment today,” the press release said.
VM Steel Maroc will take over all the activities of the Moroccan company, which had many exclusive partnerships for the supply of steel products, (stainless steel screws and flanges, grinding balls & bars, welding consumables, rubberization & rubber coating, material for chamfering & drilling, etc.), the press release said.
“VM Steel Maroc is the first international subsidiary of VM Steel, and the choice of Morocco is not due to chance. Morocco is indeed an incomparable axis of development to continue to promote the rest of the activity of VM Steel in Africa,” explains the management of the company.
Thanks to its two warehouses (5,000 m2 and 15,000 m2) located next to the port of Antwerp, VM Steel can supply, in a very short delivery time, a whole range of products ranging from ordinary steels to the most specialized alloys, underlines the press release. Through its local presence, VM Steel Maroc now offers its customers unparalleled responsiveness and quality of service, offering both technical advice, logistics and financing.
VM Steel Morocco thus offers access to specialized steel products otherwise unavailable on the local market, and at very advantageous prices for its partners.
In terms of range of products and services, VM Steel Maroc claims to offer a complete and integrated solution for all the needs of its customers. Thus, the company assures the grouping of all types of steel products in different grades, with no minimum quantity required.
Likewise, the range includes flat, long and tubular products, as well as all accessories in different qualities of carbon steel and stainless steel.
VM Steel, a Belgian family company, member of the Van Meerbeeck group founded in 1875, is present in 100 countries around the world according to its website.
It also operates in several other categories including fertilizers, gas, oil, food processing, chemistry, biochemistry, boiler making, mining, cement plants and renewable energies.
