Today, globalised business, shifting metal prices, international legislation and emerging technologies are just a few of the factors that affect the value chain from the mine to the consumer.
Our customers have asked us to go beyond just supplying metal products and become more of a business partner. So, Luvata’s strategy has opened a new era of opportunity by creating stronger partnerships in all the markets in which we operate. We call this strategy ‘Partnership Beyond Metals’.
There are three pillars which further refine this strategy:
Grow specialty products
using our innovation and diverse experience to bring value to new markets and developments.
Strengthen our presence in high-growth markets and regions
where our global footprint and local presence will have a significant impact.
Drive technical and business innovation in cooperation with customers
to bring improvement to their products and processes.
To deliver on our strategy, Luvata needs to be fit and strong on the inside. We are improving our Operational Excellence in every function; production, product development, sourcing, sales, recruitment and intelligence.
The foundation of all of this is our tradition of delivering results, honouring our promises and staying open-minded. Our principles and our corporate culture support every part of our operation.
All over the world, our customers are facing increasing expectations from their customers. Demands for better functionality, higher performance, greater sustainability and improved value for money are the norm. We use our ‘Partnerships Beyond Metals’ philosophy to actively help our customers address three primary business goals:
Improve Operational Efficiency
We help our customers gain more value from their materials and manufacturing processes. This may include any number of different improvements, such as minimising yield losses, improving productivity, up-time and quality or optimising material and scrap handling.
We work to optimise performance and differentiation in our customers’ products. This can be by improving design and performance, optimising material selection and usage, or enabling new product development opportunities.
Reduce Tied-up Capital
We help our customers release capital throughout the value chain. Ways that we do this include streamlining interaction with customers and suppliers, optimising production flow or optimising machine utilisation and use of space.
This is what we see - what we aim for in everything we do:
- To be the solution provider of choice for our customers
- To be the employer of choice for our staff
- And to be a responsible member of society and the planet in doing so.
If we can do that, we've succeeded.
