Special steels and high-tech industrial components have something in common: they both have to be of high quality and they both have to deliver long-term high performance. In view of rising market costs, steel processing companies and component manufacturers increasingly need reliable and cost-efficient fabrication processes.

Finding the ideal steel solution for a specific technological application requires a detailed understanding of steel as an engineering material and how its properties can be tailored to meet performance requirements. The business philosophy at Steeltec is expressed by its motto ‘Contributing ideas’, which encapsulates the company’s approach as an expert development partner for tailored special steel solutions.
