We are Materials Services
The industrial landscape is characterized by unique dynamics: Competition and price pressure are increasing, global supply chains are struggling with disruptions, the pace of innovation is potentiating and the drive for sustainable action requires new solutions. Modern companies need agile partners with consulting expertise.
We make our customers' success our priority and ensure that they can concentrate on what is essential – their core business. As one of the world’s leading mill-independent materials distribution and service providers, we cover the entire materials supply chain, as our business model ranges from materials trading to digital supply chain solutions.
With an extensive portfolio that includes rolled steel, non-ferrous metals, stainless steel as well as plastics and raw materials, we are active for around 250,000 customers in a wide range of industries, such as automotive, construction, mechanical engineering, aerospace and others. In developing our offering and solutions, we have a vision for our industry and our customers' needs: the regionalization of local warehousing and production, the need for resilient supply chains and accelerated decarbonization.
This requires competitive performance and continuous improvement in our efficiency and productivity. In doing so, we are pursuing three directions:
Growth, particularly in North America
Efficiency improvement and consolidation with a focus on Europe
New digital and sustainable customer solution
Our vision: A world in which resources are used in the best possible way – for joint success and a sustainable future.
