SMS group met the customer’s high expectations by cooperating extremely successfully with Puyang Steel and achieving fast commissioning and a steep run-up curve of the plant.
Jointly with Puyang Steel and building on its profound experience and proficiency, SMS group developed a tailor-made and fully integrated concept that fits perfectly into the existing structural situation of the works.
