BSE is a part of the Badische Group, which is the market leader in production and distribution of reinforcing steel products in Germany. Badische Stahlwerke (BSW) as the unique steel making unit within the group is well-known worldwide for its operational efficiency and productivity.
In the late 1960s, BSW started to produce reinforcement steel in Kehl / Germany with an installed capacity of 300,000 metric tons per year. Currently, BSW produces more than 2 million tons per year.
Many mini-mills have very similar equipment and material flow. But what has made BSW one of the most efficient mini-mills in the world can be summed up in two words “Badische Philosophy”: Educated, well-trained people care for reliable equipment, which leads to high productivity and low cost production.
