Ferrari builds state-of-the-art Formula 1 centre with steel from ArcelorMittal in Luxembourg

05.06.2015 - Ferrari is achieving its new headquarters – a next-generation office, which will feature 1,200 tonnes of steel produced by ArcelorMittal in Differdange.

Scuderia Ferrari – the motorsport division of the famous Italian sports car manufacturer – is constructing a new home for its Formula 1 management, engineering and administrative departments in Maranello, Italy. The building includes 1,000 tonnes of heavy “H” profiles and 200 tonnes of cellular beams from ArcelorMittal’s production and finishing operations in Differdange, Luxembourg.

The new corporate headquarters will span 21,000 square meters and will feature two floors of F1 workshops and laboratories, while a third level will house technical staff, a showroom and other offices.

The 200 tonnes of ACB® cellular beams were produced and supplied by ArcelorMittal Differdange’s Eurostructures Beam Finishing center, using a patented method from ArcelorMittal’s research and development team.

The patented process uses hot-rolled sections and specialised software to produce light and cost-effective beams, which offer lean, robust and safe structures.

The 1,000 tonnes of ArcelorMittal “H” profiles from Luxembourg were supplied to customer Gruppo Manni.

Speaking of the partnership, Mauro Sommavilla, a structural engineer at ArcelorMittal, said: “We are proud to have contributed to this exceptional project. We have been working with Gruppo Manni since 2000. “They are very satisfied with our heavy-range products and with the technical consulting we provided during the entire delivery phase”.
