Partnership Between Steel Giant Arcelormittal And Tekla
Tekla has signed an international partnership agreement with the biggest steelmaker in the world, ArcelorMittal. The aim is to help architects, engineers, design offices and building professionals worldwide optimize their use of steel. The first to benefit will be those customers of Tekla Structures who design and fabricate steel structures.
The transfer of technology and know-how between ArcelorMittal and Tekla will allow the companies to better understand the needs of their customers and to integrate the experiences of ArcelorMittal’s Long Carbon Steel Europe (LCE) division’s R&D and their marketing efforts. This synergy will allow even more innovative use of steel, which is a modern, indefinitely recyclable construction material that respects the environment. In addition, the purpose of the partnership is to facilitate the use of ArcelorMittal products during construction and to look for new geographical markets. Tekla and ArcelorMittal want to increase the standing of steel construction professionals by raising the profile of the steel industry through, for example, dedicated schools and training courses.
André Corniere, Director of Steel Segment at Tekla, says: “In addition to the innovative technical aspects of our collaboration, the agreement will promote steel-related building professions in emerging countries through teaching. We can now work together, using the model developed in France by Tekla and the French Steel Constructors’ Association (SCMF). The transfer of ArcelorMittal data will enhance the value of Tekla Structures software.”
This is confirmed by Jacques Hoffmann, Director of the Research Center at ArcelorMittal’s Long Carbon Europe division: “This initiative is a good example of the added value obtained from research and the close collaboration between the Building and Construction Support (BCS) marketing division, the R&D division, and the steel manufacturer.”
In conclusion, Bruno Theret, who is in charge of Marketing at ArcelorMittal BCS, says: “This partnership will make it possible to disseminate new expertise and solutions from ArcelorMittal using Tekla’s modeling and execution tool and will bring ArcelorMittal’s global offering to Tekla Structures users.”
