“I am extremely happy to welcome Marc-Simon to Outokumpu’s Leadership Team,” stated Heikki Malinen, CEO. “Through this newly established role combining raw material and general procurements, we can ensure immediate synergies throughout our purchasing operations in, for example, mitigating the impact of cost pressure.
