Our Values


Deposits of raw materials around the world are limited. This is why it is becoming more and more important to handle them responsibly. Recycling plays a vital role in this: Our methods for efficient processing of stainless steel scrap transform supposed waste materials into new basic commodities. This creates a cycle which not only saves costs but also reduces the impact on the environment. In comparison to using alternative primary raw materials, more than 4.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions are saved for each tonne of stainless steel scrap that is used (see study).
The Oryx Stainless Group consists of four legally autonomous units which carry out the operational business at their respective site with responsibility for their own profits:
The holding defines the vision and philosophy of the corporate group and ensures in addition to sales a consistent approach. In consequence, it influences the corporate policy of the units and ensures coordinated processes.
