From the time our company first opened its doors in 1953, our customers have associated Becker Stahl-Service with quality, top performance, quick turnarounds and flexibility. In the industry, the name Becker is virtually synonymous with premium products coupled with expertise and exceptional delivery options. Needless to say, we are proud of this achievement.
All of our products – ranging from wide strip and slit strip, through rectangular and trapezoidal plates, to blanks – are subject to rigorous, ongoing quality controls. This is what our customers expect of us, and they are right to do so. Our aim is to actively work with them as partners and come up with economical solutions that are nothing short of groundbreaking. Backed by the expertise of our seasoned, in-house team, we can confidently stake our good name on delivering on that promise.

The only way to rise to the top of the steel industry is through outstanding performance – and that means exceptional delivery capability. With shipments of around 900,000 metric tons, coupled with stocks of some 140,000 metric tons and rapid production, our delivery capacity is top-tier.
Our product portfolio in the 0.40 to 6.00 millimeter range encompasses not only wide strip, slit strip, plates and blanks but also processing options for trapezoidal plates, such as hot rolling, cold rolling, hot-dip galvanization/galvannealing, electrogalvanization, hot-dip aluminizing, aluzinc/zincalume and organic coating.
Automotive and auto supply companies account for over one half of our shipments – proof positive of our ability to meet the sector’s high quality and production standards. What’s more, about 25 percent of our shipments are exports, delivered to customers throughout Europe.
Our subsidiaries Becker Aluminium-Service and Umformtechnik Stendal add even greater depth and breadth to our portfolio. For our customers, that translates into an even keener competitive edge within the Klöckner Group. Because we know what it takes.
Our goal is to lead Klöckner & Co successfully and sustainably into the future as an innovative company with a clear customer focus. In doing so, we are aware of our responsibility for the environment, the public, for our employees and our shareholders.
Continuous economic and social change, in an agile market environment characterized by digital and ecological transformation, are the challenges we face.
This requires a few core values that guide our decisions and actions:
These core values include Compliance, i.e., that we adhere to laws, internal regulations, self-imposed voluntary commitments, and ethical principles, in particular Respect and Appreciation. Without exception. Illegal and unethical conduct is not acceptable - always and everywhere in the world!
Our Code of Conduct is the compass that guides us to set the right course even under troubled weather conditions. This requires a determined attitude of integrity, especially from our managers but also from each individual employee.
It is important to me that you all understand that our Code of Conduct is not just a means to avoid penalties and fines. Rather, it is important that all of us are convinced of its fundamental ethical values and principles and that we all behave accordingly.
It is up to all of us, and I trust that you will join.
