Building and infrastructure: Stainless Legacy
We build our personal and collective legacies every day. We want to leave an unforgettable legacy. We want to be proud of what we did and how we did it. A stainless legacy, to an engineer, means doing things properly. A stainless legacy, to an architect, means giving a personal push to the creative and functional limits of the profession. It’s about leaving your mark. Through your work, you tell stories, even after you’re gone. The story you want to tell, well, you want it to be stainless. True visions are crafted from stainless steel.
Our stainless steels and expertise help to create civilization’s basic structures that answer both aesthetic and functional needs.
Energy and heavy industry: Stainless Control
The backbone of our everyday life has to be unbreakable. Within the extremes we work in, failure is not an option. The cold is raw and the heat infernal. The need for durability and innovative thinking are taken to a different scale. Where a single mishap can escalate into a full-blown crisis you need reliability. You have to be on top of the situation. You need total control. You need stainless steel.
Sustainable stainless steel solutions and expertise for the most demanding processes and conditions, where failure is not an option.
Automotive and transportation: Stainless Performance
Taking tons or tens of tons from standstill to full speed requires materials that endure enormous forces and the ever growing human ambition to go further. Again and again, through uncountable number of repetitions the material carries on, carries you on, without ever giving in. So carefully designed it can be at the same time light, strong and beautiful. You can put it on rails or race tracks and it reflects the streets and deserted lonely highways. It responds to their call. It’s up to the task. Made to wonder, to take you to the place where you should be. Stainless steel.
High performance stainless steel materials and solutions for the vehicles and transportation of the future.
