Hyundai Steel belongs to Hyundai Corporation, one of the largest enterprises in South Korea and is also active in automobile business, cement business, shipyard business etc.

In 2007 Hyundai Steel invested into their first integrated iron and steel works with 2 blast furnaces and is on the way to become one of the largest iron and steel producers in the world.

The first order of 4 Loesche GmbH LM 28.2D mills and 4 LOMA LF 20 hot gas generators was received in 2007. That time Loesche GmbH won a closed bid against international competition from Germany, United States and China with their excellent reputation, superior technology and reasonable cost.

The mill capacity will be 2 x 61 t/h finish product with 70 % passing 200 mesh sieve.

In relation with the before described order intake Loesche GmbH benefited also from a synergy effect of the slag waste material from Hyundai steels integrated iron and steel works.

In the past few years Loesche GmbH sold 2 LM 46.2+2S and 2 LM 53.3+3S slag mills to process the slag waste into valuable cement.

On the occasion of the Metec exhibition in Duesseldorf, Dr. Y.C. Woo, Mr. T.H. Min and Mr. Y.J. Seok from Hyundai Steel Company were welcomed by a delegation of Loesche GmbH. After interesting discussions about future projects at Loesche’s exhibition booth, the contract was signed by Dr. Yoo Cheol Woo and Dr. Thomas Loesche, accompanied with a decent celebration.
