The key business activity of TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY, a.s., and MORAVIA STEEL a.s., is the production and sale of metallurgical products for which their finalization and added value are increased. An integral part of business activities is continual quality improvement, environmental burden reduction, employee health care and optimal energy management leading to reduction of energy consumption. Taking into account the social responsibility of all interested parties and the pursuit of the sustainable development of both companies and region, the following principles in different areas of the strategic framework are defined:
Customers, processors of our material and suppliers are considered to be partners involved in the quality of our products. The focus is on the current and future requirements of customers and processors. Emphasis is placed on expanding cooperation with these partners, especially in the field of the most demanding range of wires, special bars and their products, rails and seamless tubes.
Partnering with suppliers of major commodities and energies makes it possible to plan responsibly and react to the immediate situation inside and outside the company.
We respond to the requirements of our partners, including the State and regional bodies, for reducing the environmental impact of the used technologies and the actual products while gradually removing old environmental burdens of TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY, a.s. We provide our partners with all relevant data and guarantees.
The development of the production base, technological and research activities are aimed at continuous improvement of product quality, introduction of new products and production technologies in order to:
- meet the present and future customers’ and processors’ requirements for quality of supplies
- meet the requirements for products in the regulated sphere (construction, pressure vessels)
- use raw materials, materials and energy effectively, to reduce their consumption which would have the expected positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions
- take into account the energy intensity of processes and favoring energy-saving technologies and equipment in cases with multiple choice options
- reduce amount of generated and increase its use
- preventively reduce the overall negative impact of production on human health and lives, environment and property
- minimize the effects of serious accidents on human health and lives, the environment, property and business results
The basis for ensuring qualified staff for the needs of TŽ-MS is effective cooperation with state, regional and private schools, especially technical direction. The employee training system covers the needs of all existing and upcoming development projects with the simultaneous suppression of unwanted fluctuations of key employees. Increasing intellectual capital is an essential approach to human resource management, leading to an increase in:
- qualification, knowledge and capabilities of staff in all operating and managerial positions
- awareness of responsibility for the quality and safety of products
- awareness of responsibility for own health, co-workers' health and the working environment
- environmental awareness with the aim of prevention focused at reducing environmental pollution
- prevention level of major accidents at all stages of management
- awareness of the need for efficient energy management and avoidance of its waste
Both manufacturing and support activities reinforce the principles of a process approach focusing on prevention, which, in conjunction with project management and teamwork at all levels, are the basis for improving all certified management systems.
The manufacturing processes, as the largest consumers, plan their production with regards to optimizing their energy consumption in order not to exceed the set target values in order to ensure compliance with both the working and the overall environmental requirements.
The management system in the TŽ-MS group responds to the changing business environment by optimizing the management and production processes, in particular through the introduction of progressive planning systems, automation and robotics. In finalizing production processes is applied zero error strategy, especially for the supply chains in the automotive industry.
Emphasis is placed on internal and external communication about the results achieved. The conditions for a wide involvement of employees in the issues of improvement are created, incl. energy savings and their active approach is required.
