Outokumpu´s business is dived in to three business areas, Europe, Americas and Ferrochrome. Our business areas are organized so that Europe and the Americas include both coil and plate stainless steel operations in their market area, while Ferrochrome focuses on the chrome mine and ferrochrome operations. Our biggest business area is Europe, covering around 60% of Outokumpu sales. In Europe we are the market leader with approximately 29% market share and in the US the second biggest with market share approximately 24%. Our Kemi mine and our ferrochrome production in Tornio, Finland, are an integral part of our operations and a clear competitive advantage to us.
