Excellence in specialty steel
Stainless steels as well as nickel and special alloys made in Germany, with diameters from less than a tenth of a millimetre to over a metre - that is our speciality!
For more than 550 years, tradition, innovation, flexibility and customer proximity have been the basis of our production and satisfied customers.
In 2022, we joined Science Based Targets and have committed us to a scientifically based climate target to reduce our CO2 emissions by 42% until 2030 and to achieve climate neutrality in the long term. In this way, we are consistently pursuing our annual energy savings targets, which were first set in 2012.
Thanks to a high investment rate, BGH has one of the most modern plant structures in the world. Innovations such as fully automated ultrasonic testing facilities for bar steel up to 1 000 mm in diameter or induction heat treatment lines are just a few examples.
With our fully integrated production process - from the melt to the finished wire, bar or open-die forging - we guarantee products for the highest demands.
Whether corrosion-, heat- or wear-resistant: Our stainless steels and special alloys enable advanced developments in areas such as sustainable energy production, mobility, medical or environmental technology and stand for quality and reliability.
Our service centres offer a broad bar stock range of more than 70 materials, with fast service, worldwide availability and solutions even for your complex procurement tasks.
All our sites are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001. In addition, we meet extensive industry and customer approvals and hold other site-specific certificates such as IATF 16949 or ISO 17025.
