Ready for the challenges of the future.
Our vision.

thyssenkrupp’s Steel business is a leading supplier of flat-rolled carbon steel. Our vision sets the framework for how we want to continue this long-running success story: for our customers, our employees, and the communities we are part of.

Steel is part of thyssenkrupp – as part of a large, international group of companies

thyssenkrupp Quartier

thyssenkrupp is a group of companies with a clearly structured portfolio of materials and capital goods businesses comprising several segments.

Over 60 percent of our employees and more than 70 percent of our customers are based outside Germany. But they all have one thing in common: passion. It is this passion that makes thyssenkrupp’s Steel division Europe’s most successful steel producer, drives our innovations and helps customers become partners.

We are guided in this by our slogan:
engineering. tomorrow. together.
Read on to find out how we bring this slogan to life.

engineering. tomorrow. together. – Three words that describe who we are, what we do and how we do it.

We supply reliable products and services – on time, in premium quality and with outstanding value for money. We know our customers and their markets. We are a reliable partner – that is our pledge.

Innovative solutions for the future

Whatever our customers require, our priority is always to come up with a solution that is sustainable and innovative and will give our customers an edge going forward.

Various projects have confirmed that this is the right approach. One of them is the StreetScooter, the first all-electric delivery van used by the parcel service Deutsche Post DHL Group. Or take the MINI from BMW. Our ZM Ecoprotect zinc-magnesium coating for steel sets new standards for corrosion protection and processing.

These projects show that steel is a material that still has a great deal to offer in terms of development and innovation

Our vision: Employees

Employees of thyssenkrupp

Company of choice for highly qualified employees

We are a strong team

The innovative ideas and energy of our employees are key to developing and positioning steel as the material of the future and maintaining our leading position on the European market.

This pioneering role is made possible for example by 19 patents, courtesy of Dr. Brigitte Hammer and safe passenger cells, courtesy of Dr. Ekaterina Bocharova. And of course by engineers who ensure that new products are also practical to use and produce, such as Dr. Stefan Myslowicki, who is helping put tribond® into vehicles around the world.

Steel, the material of the future

We are fully convinced of steel’s potential. It is versatile and sustainable. And thanks to steel, tomorrow starts today.

Our powercore®® electrical steels are a good example of this. In various applications they are driving the transition to renewables – as core materials for generators, transformers and motors. On the other hand the special forming properties of tribond®® are already offering car manufacturers new ways of saving weight while at the same time enhancing occupant safety.

Our vision: Community

Environmental and social responsiblity

As a major industrial enterprise, thyssenkrupp’s Steel business is aware of its environmental and social responsibility. We therefore work constantly to develop technologies that help keep the footprint of a major organization as small as possible.

Our Carbon2Chem Initiative shows how this can work. The idea is to use steel mill gases as raw materials for chemical products – including the CO2 they contain. The process uses surplus energy from renewable sources. And with the world’s biggest fabric filter in Duisburg we can filter out almost 100 percent of the dust generated during the production of sinter to improve air quality.

It is particularly pleasing when our efforts in this area are recognized and rewarded. Winning a Steelie Award at the 50th annual conference of the World Steel Association in 2016 was a particular honor – and proof that steel is a sustainable material.
