Transformation & Future

The only constant in life is change. Only those who see it as an opportunity can be successful in the long term. At BENTELER, we go one step further. We are using our own transformation to shape – together with our customers and partners – also the mobility of the future: lighter, safer and more sustainable.

2018: BENTELER begins transformation to achieve long-term profitable growth.


BENTELER concentrates on its core competence as a metal processing specialist focused on the automotive sector. A comprehensive program to increase efficiency and competitiveness is launched. At the same time, the strategic partner network is expanded and investments are made in future fields such as lightweight construction and e-mobility as well as growth markets.

2019: Transformation program implemented globally.


BENTELER Distribution, the steel trading division of the BENTELER Group, is sold. The Steel/Tube Division implements a "Safeguarding the Future" program, under which the product portfolio, sales structure and production capacities are optimized.

2020: Operational transformation intensified.

Increased cost awareness, strategic new orders, optimized product portfolio and more flexible fixed costs. Despite Covid-19, BENTELER stabilizes its liquidity and secures refinancing until 2024. BENTELER shows itself to be a strong partner of the automotive industry – especially in times of pandemic, through reliable supply chains and international size.

2021: Transformation bears fruit.


BENTELER wins strategic new orders in its core business. The product portfolio is consistently further developed and adapted to the core business. The sale of the Tönder, Louvier, Goshen and Kalamazoo plants adjusts production capacities globally to market requirements. Strategic investments and partnerships strengthen our position in future fields such as e-mobility.

What drives us?

We know how to form and join metals like no other. This unique expertise enables us to shape the mobility of tomorrow. To make mobility lighter, safer and more sustainable. Worldwide. We can protect you and leave our children a planet worth living on. It might sound corny, but it’s meant sincerely.


How do we do it?

We know what we’re talking about – after all, we have 140 years of experience in metal processing and we’ve been in the automotive business for 85 years. What’s more, we know the entire value chain.
