Quality in steels, quality in manufacture

SSAB steel quality starts by using some of the world’s purest iron ore, found in Northern Sweden, which is then precisely milled to exacting international standards.

SSAB has built its reputation on delivering highly uniform steels: every batch has very similar mechanical properties, making it easy for highly consistent forming and joining. The result: processed steel parts that are uniform and precise, enabling straightforward assembly at OEMs.

SSAB Safety in South Africa

Determined to be the world’s safest steel company, we bring our Scandinavian culture of safety to the SSAB Steel Service Center Johannesburg.

We encourage customer visits to our shops to see how our respect for employee safety, in turn, reflects in their respect for the steels they are processing. SSAB believes in the well-being of all people who are part of the value-creation process. For us, safe working conditions are the foundation for precision processing and high productivity.

Fossil-free steels, already in 2026

Companies once considered to be indifferent to the environment are now recognizing that being green has financial, as well as moral, benefits. SSAB’s vision is to create a stronger, lighter, and more sustainable world by offering stronger, lighter, and more sustainable steels.

SSAB is one of the most CO2-efficient steelmakers in the world today – and our goal is to offer Fossil-Free Steels, starting already in 2026. By using hydrogen direct reduction iron (DRI), instead of coking coal, SSAB has virtually eliminated CO2 emissions in its pilot plant, and is scheduled to start delivering Fossil-Free Steel commercially in 2026.
