Company History and Overview
The long tradition of steel manufacturing at the Annahuette dates back to the year 1537.
It was the bishop of Salzburg that allowed our company, named Eisengewerkschaft Achtal-Hammerau, to query and manufacture iron parts such as wagon axels, nails as well as horseshoes.
The production was quickly shifted to more advanced products such as weapons and screws as well as construction related metal products.
The current mill is still operating on those exact promises and has continuously been in operation for the last 477 years. This makes the Annahuette, as it is known today, the oldest known steel manufacturing company still in existence anywhere on the globe.
During the last century, the main focus was placed on the manufacturing of the highest quality steel products imaginable. Our products are essential for the construction, engineering and automotive industries worldwide.
Max Aicher, the current owner, took over the mill in 1975 and used the solid foundation to create a group of companies that are closely related and work in perfect harmony to satisfy the global demand for High Grade Steel.
SAS Systems (Stahlwerk Annahuette Systems) has since become the leading supplier of the most advanced steel products available.
With a worldwide presence through SAS Systems companies, the Max Aicher group has been establishing itself as a leader in the most advanced engineering projects to date.
