With a workforce of more than 9,300 people, and a production volume of around seven million tonnes of crude steel, we are one of Germany’s largest steel manufacturers. We operate four large production sites: two integrated steel plants in Bremen and Eisenhüttenstadt, producing 'flat carbon' steel largely for the automotive, packaging and household appliance industries, and two steel mills in Hamburg and Duisburg producing 'long carbon' steel for use in construction and industry. We also have a strong sales network in Germany as well as seven cutting service centres and 16 distribution centres.

This year we published our first country-wide sustainability report in March 2015, and formed a sustainable development committee in April, which will enable us to assess our maturity and develop a plan on sustainable development. This will enable us to map out how we approach our progress towards the 10 outcomes.
