NLMK La Louvière
The daily challenge is to help production to create high-quality products and coils that meet the costumers’ needs.
It is true that there are more and more women working in the industry, at both the cold and hot rolling mills.
My role involves supervising the cross-cutting processes, as well as assisting the local processes managed by the units on each site.
Our priority is trying to make sure that everything is organized as well as possible.
I have worked in the factory for the past 30 years. I spend every day here working in the Quality and Metallurgy Department.
Two of my sons work for NLMK La Louviere. One son works in the rolling shop, the other in the steel processing shop. I sincerely hope that the plant continues to operate for many years, even after I retire, and that it has a bright future ahead of it.
The NLMK group contributes its industrial and financial strength to our site. We buy its slabs to produce our coils. NLMK La Louvière also complements NLMK Clabecq's commercial offer; the two sites complement each other. There are many possible synergies between the sites.
I started in 1981 as a production operator at the wire mill. I then worked as a mechanic at the cold rolling mill. Since 2000, I have been working as a production operator at the hot strip mill, initially at the Quarto sheet mill and subsequently at the reheating furnaces.
The NLMK group urges us to do the most with the available equipment. Everyone has to give their all. In addition, it does not hesitate to invest when required. We receive high quality support from our colleagues in Russia to support the implementation of the NPS.
