Today`s Mannheim branch emerged from the former Eisen- und Stahlhandel (Mannheim warehouse, sheet/steel sections). It was subsequently known as “Thyssen Stahlunion AG” and thereafter as “Thyssen-Schulte GmbH” before it ultimately became part of what is now thyssenkrupp Materials Processing Europe GmbH in 1994.
The production shop covers 30,000 m² and includes a total of seven cut-to-length and slitting lines. The vast warehousing areas provide space for around 50,000 metric tons of coils in a variety of grades and surface finishes. The direct availability of such a wide product range ensures maximum flexibility which can fulfill even the most specific customer wishes in a short space of time. An additional advantage in reducing delivery times is the location's close links with waterways, rail, and the motorway.
Alongside a variety of longitudinally slit products, the location supplies in addition to the many customized formats, very small tailored blanks starting from only 200 mm length and 80 mm width. A further highlight of the Mannheim branch: specialization in high-quality stainless steel.
