The SHW Group is an enterprise with an uninterrupted metallurgical tradition. The roots of the present-day SHW Group go back to the year, when work began on the smelting of iron ore in the Swabian Jura. The company's development into a technological leader in the production of vehicle components contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions results from an awareness of being rooted in a long tradition, accompanied by a readiness and desire for change and innovation.
