BUDERUS EDELSTAHL QUALITY FROM A SINGLE SOURCE:


The entire production process, from melting through to pro-
duction of the end product, takes place at the Wetzlar site. This
also applies for our high-quality special engineering steels. We
melt the initial material from high-quality scrap steel in our
own steel plant and forge the ingots in the open die forging
process on our hydraulic presses with a compression force of
up to 100 MN. The heat treatment and quality check also take
place directly on-site. All production steps are precisely coor-
dinated. This saves time, makes the product handover easier
and makes us flexible and reliable. The short communication
paths between quality assurance, production planning, pro-
duction and sales enable smooth order processing.

The expectations of our customers have the highest priority


at every stage. As a competent partner, we are available for
all application queries and work with our customers to find
suitable solutions for specific requirements. We produce tried-
and-tested standard products, as well as individual steels, which
we develop according to the specifications of our customers.
Small batch sizes are no problem for us. The success of Buderus
Edelstahl is based on a high level of flexibility, reliability and
service, as well as on a transparent materials management
and quality assurance system.
