The Duisburg mill is the heart of the company. Its location on the Rhine has been invaluable ever since the site was founded in 1891: Downstream processing operations are performed in Bochum, Dortmund, and the Siegerland area on state-of-the-art rolling and coating lines. Electrical Steel in Gelsenkirchen stands for high-quality grain-oriented electrical steel, while a second subsidiary in Andernach ranks among the world market leaders in tinplate. Steel not only operates in Germany but is also represented on the Chinese market through a joint venture producing premium-quality hot-dip coated steel for the auto industry.
