Business Overview

-The Company was founded through the merger between Thyssen AG and Friedrich Krupp AG Hoesch-Krupp in 1999.

-The Company is a diversified industrial group with three primary focus areas. Its capital goods businesses develop and manufacture components and service solutions for the automotive, machinery, and energy markets. The Company’s plant engineering portfolio provides engineering, construction and maintenance of industrial facilities. Finally, the Company’s material businesses offers customized material solutions, materials manufacturing and materials processing.

-The Company is divided into five business areas: Components Technology, Elevator Technology, Industrial Solutions, Materials Services and Steel Europe.

-In September 2017, the Company completed the sale of its CSA steel mill in Brazil to Ternium, a Latin American steelmaker. The sale marks the completion of the divestiture of the Company’s Steel Americas unit, which began in 2014 with the sale of a processing plant to a consortium consisting of ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel.

-The automotive industry is the Company’s largest customer group, accounting for 27% of the Company’s total sales, or EUR 11.6 billion, in the fiscal year ended September 2017.

-The Company’s business areas which are involved in the automotive industry are as follows:

  • Components Technology: Manufactures components for a vehicle's powertrain and chassis such as cylinder head modules, axle modules, and electric power-assisted steering systems.
  • Steel Europe: Provides various types and grades of steel
  • Industrial Solutions: Provides production systems and infrastructure
  • Materials Services: Materials distribution
