Deutsche Edelstahlwerke GmbH be­­longs to the SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group and is one of the world-leading manu­fac­­turers of special steel long products. The company is the result of the 1 January 2007 merger between Edelstahl Witten Krefeld GmbH and Edelstahlwerke Südwestfalen GmbH. The combined ex­­pertise in manufacturing high-grade special steel products exceeds 150 years. The product spectrum includes tool and high-speed steels, stainless, acid and heat-resistant steels (RSH), high-grade structural and anti-friction bearing steels as well as special materials such as Ferro-Titanit ®.

A staff of approximately 4,000 at the main locations of Witten, Siegen, Krefeld and Hagen produce a globally unique palette of products, ranging from 0.8-mm-diameter drawn wire to 1,000-mm-­di­a­m­­e­­ter forged items.
