Thousands celebrate Family Day at LIBERTY Galati

  • Sanjeev Gupta welcomes thousands to steelworks’ first family day event since 2019
  • LIBERTY celebrates new partnership with SC Oțelul Galati
  • LIBERTY highlights employees in its first GREENSTEEL communications campaign

Sanjeev Gupta, Executive Chairman of LIBERTY Steel Group, and thousands of LIBERTY Galati’s employees and their families enjoyed a concert from the Romanian superstar Delia at the steelwork’s first Family Day event since 2019. The LIBERTY family also celebrated becoming the official sponsor of SC Oțelul Galati by welcoming members of the team to the plant for the first time.

On 6th August, Sanjeev welcomed almost 3,000 employees and their families as well as senior national and local stakeholders, including Mr Florin Spătaru the Romanian Minister of Economy, to the first family event to be held at the steelworks since the COVID pandemic started. The LIBERTY family and their guests were able to visit a range of fun stands, enjoy tours of the steelworks and were treated to a series of stars on the main stage including Delia – who is an iconic figure of Romanian music and a complete artist with stunning performances. The event was hosted by TV star Adrian Nartea and children were entertained by a special performance of Coloricii. The Galati team were also able to welcome some of the stars of the SC Oțelul Galați club, as they celebrated the recent announcement of a new sponsorship deal.

Sanjeev thanked employees through a speech which highlighted the steelwork’s GREENSTEEL transformation plans, which will see the plant producing carbon neutral steel by 2030, as well as an eye-catching new campaign to highlight those who are going to help achieve that ambition.  He also unveiled the steelwork’s new corporate film which highlights how LIBERTY Galati and Romania will be leaders of Europe’s green steel future.

Sanjeev Gupta, Executive Chairman LIBERTY Steel Group, said: “In business as well as at home, my family comes absolutely first in my life. Days like these where all our family members can meet and mix in friendship are more than just fun, they are essential. Because family is the heart of society and the core of the Galati community. My wife Nicola and I are so proud to be a part of your community. A community that has so very much to be proud of and so much to look forward to.”

Ajay Aggarwal, European President of LIBERTY Steel Group and Chairman of the LIBERTY Galați Board,  said: “It has been great to welcome so many of the wider LIBERTY Galati family here today – without their support we would not be the business we are today or the business we want to be in the future.  I am also very grateful to Delia for helping us celebrate today in such an amazing way – she will always be welcome here and I know “We’ll See Each Other” again!”

One of the employees present at the event, Claudiu Fuica – Head of Galvanizing and Organic Coating Execution Sector – mentioned: “It was great to be able to bring my family into the steelworks so that I could show them where I work. The event was fantastic  – my family and I came to see Delia on stage, but we found many other fun things to do. I never thought I would get to see such a huge star playing here at our plant – it was amazing.”
