The plan, as said, envisages the carrying out of all the necessary activities so that SFS would be able to launch the investment in the new furnace as soon as the second half of 2024 and, as a result of that, once again increase its production, while at the same time securing stable operations of the company in the meantime.

The beginning of the assembly works for the new furnace is planned for the first quarter of 2024, and the value of the investment is estimated at over EUR 40 million.

– In the meantime, the company, together with the agency, will carry out the program of letting go the surplus workers, upon whose completion, in the period until the new furnace is put into operation, around 380 jobs will be kept, and new employments are expected to start in the second half of 2024 – the announcement says.

They add that the beginning of production in the new furnace, a gradual increase of the production to 280 tons per month and new employments are to follow.
