The Libyan Iron and Steel Company announced the exportation of about 37,000 tons of hot-rolled steel to Italy and Germany, saying on its Facebook page that the ship "S. Nibton" left the company's port on Sunday loaded with more than 27,000 tons of hot-rolled steel, bound for Germany and that the ship "Immensity" entered the company's port on Monday evening to ship more than 10,000 tons to Italy.

The company confirmed that a number of countries had been focusing on its products due to the quality of its hot-rolled steel and "the smooth way it deals with customers," adding that this was because of the great efforts made by all the company's workers to be able to reserve a prominent position among the major companies in this line of work.
