Strong tradition for a future that matters

Steel is our backbone, our DNA. The Swiss Steel Group consists of traditional steel mills and processing companies that have been merged over the past decades to form a globally active steel group. With a global Sales & Services network, we are experienced allies with our customers in consulting, development, production and services.
