Primetals Technologies receives final acceptance for wire rod mill upgrade from OneSteel in Australia


Primetals Technologies has received the final acceptance certificate from OneSteel Market Mills in

Australia for installed upgrades at its Laverton Wire Rod Mill. Improvements to the water cooling line and
