With its high-quality forgings, BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG is one of the world’s leading suppliers to the aerospace industry as well as the energy industry.
The company was founded in 1991 and today, as a wholly owned subsidiary of voestalpine AG, is a member of the Special Steel Division. Originally focused primarily on the energy market, in 1991 BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG began concentrating on the aerospace industry as its core business – and today earns more than 90% of its sales volume in this segment.
Top quality is key
The company has earned a superb reputation worldwide in the high-quality segment for difficult-to-form materials. It brings together materials, design engineering and manufacturing capabilities under one roof. The company’s headquarters is in Kapfenberg, Austria, in the federal state of Styria. From here, the company supplies aircraft manufacturers in Europe (especially England and France), America and Asia. The customer list also includes major Tier 1 suppliers
