Steel is essential for future vehicle generations and continues to be one of the most important materials in the automotive construction. This involves new challenges and that is why it is necessary to achieve ambitious goals: higher safety, maximized weight reduction, higher profitability and also more efficiency in environmental protection and resource savings.
By further development of our steel grades and with the help of new technologies we are ready to implement these goals.
Let´s intensify our dialog to match the potential of steel with your requirements by innovation and constant development.

The requirements driven by environmental policy that vehicle manufacturers have to satisfy are manifold: On the one hand, supplier components need to be as light as possible in order to reduce or keep fuel consumption down through weight savings. On the other, their structure has to be sound in order to absorb or divert the impact energy in the event of a crash.
