Innovative Metalwork For Over A Century – The Company History

Founded in 1900, Hermann Stahl GmbH initially specialized in furnaces and vineyard accessories. Over the following decades, the company expanded its portfolio to include stamped and formed parts as well as assembly.

STEEL Automotive GmbH was established on November 24, 2004, and commenced its operations on January 1, 2005, with 235 employees. Through an expanded global tool procurement strategy, particularly in China and Europe, the company acquired numerous new customer projects over the years. Additionally, in 2011, STEEL Automotive GmbH expanded to include the business unit STEEL Ball Joints, creating a segment for proprietary products and increasing the share of non-automotive products.

In recent years, particular attention has been placed on standardizing and optimizing processes, as well as technologically modernizing the company.
