Certified in accordance with EN/AS 9100 in 2016, SBOT has also made its first successful step into the aviation industry.

What we offer

The demands placed on the load-bearing capacity of steels in terms of temperature and corrosion are constantly increasing.

In close cooperation with our partners in the steel plant as well as with research institutes and universities, we carry out much active research and development work. Together we develop new materials and improve existing brands. We are a solution-oriented company and deal with optimising production processes or looking for new technical processes.

The excellent technological know-how of our employees sets the trend and gives us an outstanding position in the industry. Our employees work on more than 120 CNC-controlled machines on an area of around 45,000 m².
