We can look back on 100 successful years of forging tradition


Foundation of the forge as part of the Röchling'sche Eisen- und Stahlwerke GmbH


At the time of the German economic miracle, the forge extends its product portfolio and starts to manufacture turbines and generator shafts which, due to the high stresses to which they are subjected, then as now, are one of the most difficult forged parts to produce.


The large-scale expansion of the forge facilities represents a milestone since these investments set the course for the production of forgings for power generation machinery using sophisticated, high-alloy materials.


“Saarschmiede GmbH Freiformschmiede” is founded as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saarstahl AG.


Inauguration of the new forge: It is one of the most modern forges in the world and is put into operation after a construction time of just two years.
