About us

Stainless steels, tool 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.

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 generation, mobility, engineering, medical or environmental technology and stand for quality and reliability.

Our steel-servicecenters 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, and we also meet extensive industry and customer approvals and hold other site-specific certificates such as IATF 16949 and ISO 17025...

In 2022, we committed to a science-based climate target with the Science Based Targets initiative to reduce our CO2-emissions by 42% by 2030 and achieve climate neutrality in the long term. In this way, we are consistently pursuing our annual energy savings targets first set in 2012.
