Locus Technologies Completes Due Diligence of Ascometal Plants in France.
Ascometal produces special long-steel products, and Safe is its forging subsidiary. Together, the two companies had 1998 net sales of 750 million euros, representing 7 percent of Usinor's consolidated sales. Ascometal, with four electric furnace steel production units and four transformation and distribution facilities, sold 1.1 million metric tons of rolled long-steel products in 1998.
Lucchini SpA had consolidated sales of 990 million euros in 1998 and a production of approximately 2 million metric tons of rolled long-steel products. Lucchini is a European leader in the special long-products segment. "This is obviously an important development for Locus," said Neno Duplancic, President and CEO of Locus Technologies. "It demonstrates our competitive position and ability to provide due diligence and other environmental services in Europe. We are happy that our contribution to environmental due diligence helped close this important transaction for our client." With this project, Locus continues its expansion into Europe.
