  • Consistently superior quality
  • Uniformity and high strength

 

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Added value from a combination our strength lies in the combination of the latest technologies. From there we develop innovative added value in the application of steel as a material. By joining steel with different metallurgical and physical properties. By cold rolling, annealing, welding or hardening procedures for strip steel with edges or surfaces exhibiting a richness of variation. And with first-class metallurgical quality with specific strip steel machining.

 

Material expertise – in association with the voestalpine Group, we control all quality parameters, starting from the specific selection of steel grades. With around 30 steel grades used in day-to-day business, we schedule a finely aligned portfolio that enables us to offer short delivery times and small production volumes. Whenever new ideas for new applications require it, we develop project-specific alloy formulas together with our customers.

 

Machining expertise – when working steel strips, we combine technological expertise with industrial power – with a latest-generation cold rolling mill in Kematen, Austria and with unique capabilities in Munkfors, Sweden, all distributed through our UK based Headquarters.
