Headquartered in Finland and operating in more than 30 countries with around 9,000 employees, Outokumpu has entered into a multi-year strategic partnership with

“TCS’ deep and contextual understanding of the steel industry and cloud-first approach enables us to improve our productivity and profitability as well as achieve our sustainability targets,” said Stefan Erdmann, Chief Technology Officer, Outokumpu.
