Around 27,000 people work for thyssenkrupp Steel Europe at its various sites – most of them in the Ruhr area, where the company has its roots. All our sites offer attractive entry opportunities – from apprenticeships through to expert and management positions.
Duisburg is not only home to thyssenkrupp Steel's headquarters, the city is also our biggest production location with five different sites. Our integrated iron and steel mill carries out every step of the steelmaking process, and our blast furnaces and melt shops are also located here. That opens up a wide range of options for applicants interested in working in the steel industry.
The Bochum site houses one of our biggest hot strip mills. With its high drive power and coilbox, the wide hot strip mill is particularly suitable for rolling. In addition, hot-rolled from Duisburg is processed to non-oriented electrical steel at the Bochum site.
Our Dortmund site has a state-of-the-art cold rolling mill with additional continuous annealer and coating lines, such as hot-dip coating line 8.
The Finnentrop plant in the Sauerland region is our smallest German production site with a long tradition of surface coating. The centerpiece is one of thyssenkrupp's most advanced hot-dip coating lines, which can be used to produce both hot-dip galvanized and hot-dip aluminized products. The site also houses a narrow strip galvanizing line for strip widths up to 200 mm.
thyssenkrupp Steel Europe also has production subsidiaries and investment companies in several other countries. Information on our international sites can be found on the general site overview page .
