Our pre-processing possibilities offer many advantages.
They reduce our customers‘ costs, for example.

A growing degree of cost reduction potential for the manufacturing industry lies in the field of pre-processing. At the same time, the demands on individually tailored steel solutions and the precise processing of steel products for the respective application are constantly increasing. Accordingly, the reduction of vertical integration and the associated integration of competent partners into the value chain go hand in hand with high expectations of cost and benefit effects.

The Westfälische Stahlgesellschaft group of companies lives up to these expectations across all sites by offering a wide range of high-performance production systems in the field of pre-processing combined with the comprehensive know-how of its employees. Our trading companies have state-of-the-art sawing capacities in the form of a large number of high-performance band and circular saws. Whether rolled steel or bright steel, round or square profiles, thin dimensions or diameters over 700 mm, individual cuts, bulk material production or robot-controlled container or pallet loading according to customer-specific packing instructions – we know virtually no limits where the economical production of saw cuts within the narrowest tolerances is concerned.

The pre-processing spectrum of our activities is supplemented by the possibilities of end processing in the Plettenberg drawing mill. These include chamfering, planing, centering or marking fixed lengths.
Approvals from Germanischer Lloyd and TÜV also allow us to stamp fixed lengths sawn from rolled and forged round steel with an acceptance test certificate (re-stamping of acceptance material). All in all, this gives our customers the freedom they want for their core competencies.
