Powerful presence

SMS group has a powerful setup in the world’s largest market for the production of metals. Our history goes back to 1904 and the supply of the first rolling mill to China. In the past 40 years, SMS group has played a major role in supplying high-tech plant technology, paving the way for China to become the world’s largest producer of steel, aluminum, and other nonferrous metals.

History

SMS group has been active in China since right back in 1904. What hasn’t changed over all this time is our commitment to offer customers life cycle support and assistance with all their daily operations and challenges.

The headquarters for the region are located in Beijing, supported by our offices in Wuhan and Shanghai. Thanks to the know-how and expertise that has been built up there in recent years, many projects are now being handled and sourced directly from China. To provide Chinese customers with life-cycle services, we have established two service workshops in Shanghai (26,000 m²) and Tianjin (14,500 m²). Included in the service portfolio are solutions ranging from spare parts to repairs and modernization, technical support, warehousing, consignment stock, teleservice, training sessions, and electrical and automation systems implementation.

China is also focusing on ‘green technologies’ with the aim of achieving carbon neutrality in metals industries by 2060. SMS group will support China on this ambitious roadmap with solutions to decarbonize the production of iron and steel and new recycling technologies for all process steps.
