ACEROS OMARZABAL is a Steel Service Center with an extensive background in the steel sector since 1975. We are a family-based, 100% Basque-owned share capital company, with registered address located at Barrio Kortederra in Amorebieta-Etxano (Biscay).
Aceros Ormazabal began a process of reflection to reinvent the organisation, setting itself the goal of going from being a standard steel service center (with a local geographic scope and targeting sectors with non-specialised common steel consumption) to becoming a specialist steel supplier in the quality steel sector offering thick and high yield products. These reflections resulted in the company relocating from its offices in San Sebastian to a strategic location in Amorebieta-Etxano.
The company took the committed decision to establish itself as a Leading Service Center in Southern Europe, specialising in Laser Cutting. In consequence, the Company makes every effort to continuously develop and implement production equipment betterment:
- · Extension of the facilities at Amorebieta.
- · Installation of a cutting edge 2020×20 cutting line, with the capacity to cut and flatten steel:
Up to 20mm thick
Up to S700 grades (high yield strength steel)
Standard / Restricted tolerance
The company overhauled the 2000×6 cutting line.
We embarked on a research project in 2012 in collaboration with FAGOR ARRASATE S. Coop, to investigate the technical feasibility of an ecological industrial solution to obtain uniform steel both in terms of surface aspect and stress relieving, with a view towards providing a solution to the growing demands on the laser market. This project was completed in 2016 with the commissioning of the Environmentally Friendly Pickling Line with Micro-impacting and Stress Relief.
