Our Strategy "Materials as a Service"

From best materials seller to best materials supplier of "Materials as a Service": thyssenkrupp Materials Services is continuing its strategic development to actively shape change in the industry.

thyssenkrupp Materials Services is the largest materials distributor in the western world – and much more. As a flexible, expert consulting partner, we already link the supply of raw materials and other materials with supply chain management services. In this way we secure decisive competitive advantages for our customers. We call this approach "Materials as a Service".

Our strategy is designed to systematically drive forward our transformation into a universal materials supplier and integrated system partner. In order to supply our customers reliably at all times, we have continuously optimized, diversified and digitalized our own supply chain over the years. Our knowledge becomes a competitive advantage for our customers: in future we will offer our supply chain know-how as services.

In our daily actions and activities we are guided by our vision of creating a world in which resources are always used in the best possible way - for joint success and a sustainable future.
