Pablo Abasolo leads the raw material procurement Team in AST, after joining the company 6 months ago. His main focus is reshaping the raw material management within the reshaping process the company is undergoing, by following a Lean Transformation philosophy, and reach best market standards.
This is the first time that this “Continuous Improvement” philosophy has been implemented in a steel site of this size and importance. This journey involved the whole company: from the central plant in Terni to the external production units.
Pablo supports this transformation by his 15 year experience in steelmaking raw materials earned by managing purchasing for mills in Europe, North and South America. He expects to contribute to AST reaching its full potential, by maintaining a close cooperation with TK Materials Trading, strengthening the professionalization of processes involving the area and motivating the team to get rid of paradigms.
