Within the "Initiative Automotive" we pool our expertise and work continuously on the further development of materials, processes and services. In close cooperation with our customers we develop innovative concepts and ideas for the automotive engineering of tomorrow.
From materials development to individual component solutions, we offer a broad portfolio of products that demonstrably improve performance values in the body, chassis and powertrain application areas.
A particular strength of Salzgitter AG's Automotive initiative lies in its ability to implement complex system solutions for special application areas and customer requirements. Our structure enables us to rapidly assemble cross-Group project teams in which marketable solutions are developed in close cooperation with the customer through the effective networking of different areas of expertise.
Mannesmann Precision Tubes is a leading manufacturer of cold-drawn seamless and welded precision steel tubes, profiles and tubular components as well as seamless hot-finished tubes. As a long-standing partner to the international automotive industry, we offer optimized and customized products for numerous applications in motor vehicles and provide specific solutions for conventional as well as alternative drive technology.
With our comprehensive expertise, we accompany our customers in the selection of materials for their application and determine the optimum production route and necessary processing steps with regard to customer requirements.
Innovative and sustainable
Products & Services
At the companies of the Salzgitter Group, around 25,000 people work every day to provide customers from a wide range of customer industries with innovative and sustainable products of the highest quality. Our core competences lie in the manufacture of rolled steel and tubes products, as well as their further processing and global trading in these products.
Highest quality standards
Our automotive products are suitable for many applications, meeting even the highest level of requirements. Our group world ranges from applications of flat steel products in the car body, to hydroforming products, to applications of our tubular products as lines.
With SALCOS®, we have joined forces with partners from industry and research to lay the foundations for virtually CO2-free steel production. Central elements of the concept are electricity from renewable sources and its use in the production of hydrogen by means of electrolysis. This green hydrogen will replace the coal we currently use in the conventional blast furnace process. This will be possible with the help of so-called direct reduction plants, in which iron ore is reduced to iron directly in the solid state by hydrogen. This technology emits water vapor instead of CO2.
Our SALCOS® program thus pursues the Carbon Direct Avoidance approach, which stands for avoiding the generation of CO2 in steel production from the outset. Overall, our approach enables us to reduce CO2 emissions in steel production by over 95 %.
