Rautaruukki Oyj P.O. Box 138 (Suolakivenkatu 1)
Helsinki, Finland

Press release date: February 19, 2014

WEXFORD, Pennsylvania —

WHO: Finland-based steel company Ruukki, which recently launched in the North American steel market, is showcasing its energy efficient specialized steels at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, one of the construction industry's largest trade shows.

Ruukki executives available to speak with the media during the show include:

• Thomas Hornfeldt, Senior Vice President, Special Steels International Sales at Ruukki Metals
• Josu Pina, Vice President, Special Steel Sales, Americas, Ruukki

WHAT: Ruukki will show samples of its Optim® brand of ultra-high-strength steel as well as its Raex® wear-resistant steel, both marketed in North America. In addition, Ruukki will showcase several manufacturing customers using its steel, including a U.S.-based global leader in the material lifting equipment industry.

Ruukki's Optim steel helps manufacturers reduce energy costs of equipment, vehicles and other industrial products while gaining extra high-strength performance. Optim is ideal for frame structures in commercial vehicles, mobile machines, equipment booms and other heavy lifting equipment.

Raexis wear-resistant steel with a hardness and impact toughness best suited for bucket trucks and containers, mining equipment, platform structures, feeders and other high-wear applications. With plate thicknesses ranging from 0.079" up to 3.150" (2 mm up to 80 mm), Raex wear plates can extend the lifespan of machinery, decrease wear in structural components and save costs.

Ruukki pioneered the use of direct quenching technology. This breakthrough enables the energy-efficient manufacture of high-strength and wear-resistant Ruukki steels using hot-rolled steel quenched at about 1650° F (900° C) to ambient temperature immediately after rolling. This saves energy because the reheating stage after hot-rolling is omitted.

WHERE: Las Vegas Convention Center, 3150 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109
