Steels in Cars and Trucks 2017 – Shaping the future together

Düsseldorf, May 10, 2017

One of the two goals behind SCT “Bringing the automotive, supplier and steel industries together” reinforces what the modern steel industry is all about: partnerships across value chains being made up of industry, research and development professionals.

The second motto of SCT 2017 is “Future trends in steel development, processing technologies and applications”. This ability to steadily innovate one of mankind’s earliest and most inventive materials for industrial use is reflected in the increasing amount of steel being consumed throughout the world. Steel delivers ample solutions for solving such future global challenges such as electro mobility and is a forerunner in the preservation of material resources due to its excellent recycling capabilities.

SCT 2017 expects to welcome over 400 participants, more than half will come from all over the world. This congress has always welcomed a balanced mix of representatives from steel producers and the automotive / supplier industry. It is exactly this mix that fosters networking opportunities between steel producers, automobile manufacturers and automotive suppliers.

Hans Jürgen Kerkhoff, Chairman Steel Institute VDEh and President of the German Steel Federation, will kick off the Opening Session with his keynote presentation: “Global challenges – Regional perspectives”, followed by Anand Sen, President, TQM & Steel Business, Tata Steel Ltd., India, with a presentation themed: “A strategic partner in the global automotive industry: The Tata Steel case study” as well as Johan Zijp, Manager, Central Laboratory, DAF Trucks, The Netherlands, with a lecture on the “Developments in steel use for modern trucks”. Finally, Hans Fischer, CEO, Tata Steel Europe, The Netherlands, will close the Opening Session with his presentation: “Steels in Cars and Trucks 2017: Let’s make the difference“.

The SCT 2017 platinum sponsor, Tata Steel, will be hosting an exclusive afternoon program, including a plant tour, at their plant in IJmuiden on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 as well as, together with the Steel Institute VDEh, an evening event at Louwman Museum in The Hague.
