SSAB and Manitou Group agree on deliveries of fossil-free steel

SSAB has signed a letter of intent for deliveries of fossil-free steel to Manitou Group. Deliveries are set to start in 2026 and ramp up as SSAB’s fossil-free steel production capacity increases.

SSAB already delivers specialized and high-strength steels to Manitou Group, a world reference in the handling, aerial work platform, and earth moving sectors. Both companies are now furthering their collaboration by adding future deliveries of the emission-free steels, SSAB Fossil-free™ and SSAB Zero®, to the mix.

Both steel types are produced with virtually zero fossil carbon emissions, which will allow Manitou Group to bring to market a new generation of sustainable products with radically reduced CO2 footprint, including for example telehandler, aerial work platform or forklift ranges.

“We’re excited about adding Manitou Group as a fossil-free partner to SSAB. Our goal is to revolutionize the way steel is produced and pave the way for a greener future. Thanks to customers like Manitou Group who share our ambition of reducing carbon emissions, we’re able to create early markets for sustainable steel,” says Olavi Huhtala, EVP and Head of SSAB Europe.

“We work every day closely with our suppliers to reduce our indirect carbon emissions and offer more sustainable products to our customers. This collaboration with SSAB is very important for us as steel represents the main raw material for our products,” says Maurizio Achilli, VP Sourcing at Manitou Group.
