One hundred years on

BILSTEIN celebrates its centenary!

1911 saw the founding of BILSTEIN – the company that would go on to become the BILSTEIN GROUP – in a former dance hall in Hohenlimburg, Germany. The company immediately enjoyed rapid development, and in 1921, a new, modern factury was built and BILSTEIN moved into its new premises - where it remains to this day. In its first year, BILSTEIN processed 250 metric tons of cold-rolled steel strip, and after moving premises, soon increased production to several thousand metric tons.

Today, the BILSTEIN GROUP employs over 1,400 people - with 600 of these based in the main plant - and is Europe's leading cold-rolled steel manufacturer. Annual production stands at over 600,000 tons.
