Outokumpu is “cautiously optimistic” about the stainless steel market for the rest of 2003 and next year, president coil products Karri Kaitue said.

Outokumpu’s own stainless slab capacity will reach 2.75 million tonnes by the end of 2004, following the completion of an investment and expansion programme at its plant in Tornio, Finland.
