Joint Venture


Paul Wurth, as a leading technology provider for the primary stage of integrated steelmaking, and SAB, an engineering and manufacturing company particularly specialised in blast furnace mechanical components, decided to join forces by creating a Luxembourg-based competence centre for all types of special valves related to the blast furnace, such as stoves valves, goggle valves, equalising valves and bleeder valves. Additionally, the portfolio of VCL – Valve Competence Luxembourg will include blast furnace Tuyere Stocks of advanced design. The activities of VCL Valve Competence Luxembourg cover engineering, manufacturing, assembly and commissioning with a strong focus on all related after-sales and repair services. The joint business is limited to the European territory.

With the establishment of a common dedicated competence centre, both partners combine their respective engineering and manufacturing capabilities, so as to be able to offer their European customers fast, flexible, tailor-made and secure solutions, which meet the customers’ needs and expectations and are synonym of excellent product quality.

The new company has its location in Grevenmacher/Luxembourg in the premises of SAB S.à.r.l.
