The Salzgitter Group is among Europe's leading steel and technology groups. Sustainable energies are increasingly gaining importance as one of the key markets for the group's future.
Salzgitter AG ranks among Germany's long-established steel groups and is one of the biggest European players in the steel and technology markets. The five sectors – flat steel, plate/sectional steel, Mannesmann, trading, and technology – work closely together, harnessing their product portfolios into a comprehensive mix of high-quality steel products and related services.
The Group's subsidiaries and associated companies produce flat steel products, beams and sectional steel, plate, seamless and welded tube and pipe in all sizes as well as a wide range of value-added products. Salzgitter Mannesmann Forschung GmbH, the Group's own research institute, complements the competencies of the producing companies with new developments, thus consolidating the Group's technology leadership.
Salzgitter products are sought after in nearly all sectors of industry, some increasingly so. The energy turnaround, the outcome of climate change, has given rise to major investments in plants for renewable energy production and in transport networks. One thing is sure: without steel as a structural material, there can be no energy turnaround since the special properties of high-grade steel products are indispensable in the related projects. The need for new power generation plants and energy distribution systems is thus creating an important growth market for the Salzgitter Group and its steel products.
Salzgitter AG is combining its competencies and strengths to help shape the future of sustainable and renewable energies, Salzgitter Mannesmann Renewables concentrates all the relevant production capacities as well as skills in supply chain management and research. This makes Salzgitter Mannesmann Renewables the ideal partner for projects focusing on climate-friendly energies.
