We have been getting steel into top form for over 65 years!
OKS Otto Knauf GmbH was founded in 1952 as an independent steel service centre in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia between the Ruhr and Sauerland regions – with its current headquarters in Iserlohn. The former cold-rolling mill with its own pickling plant was dynamically transformed into today’s OKS Otto Knauf GmbH. OKS has since become a specialist in the slitting and handling of steel of all kinds and has repeatedly set standards for the global market within steel processing. A modern steel service centre with high-performance slitting lines, which processes several hundred thousand tons of steel per year and shapes it into the desired and precisely tailored form. With over 65 years of experience, OKS offers its worldwide customer base the highest quality standards, in-depth consulting, best service right from the start, on-time delivery and reliability.

Innovation is a tradition with us.
We at OKS Otto Knauf GmbH stand for around seven decades of steady growth and systematic investment in the future. Despite all the economic dynamics and expansion, we remain true to our roots, namely the powerful economic region of South Westphalia. And it will remain so in the future.
With strong partners at our side we face the challenges of the market and the implementation of our growth strategy. In the future, our focus will continue to be on expanding our service portfolio, increasing the capacity utilisation of our plants whilst strengthening our position as regional market leader in the steel service sector. Jointly with you for a successful future.
Steel Service is Teamwork!
With over 100 employees in the Steel Service Center, we are making our contribution to the economy in Iserlohn. Our well-trained staff is one of our greatest assets.
We work with the greatest precision, because this is the only way we can offer our international customers great cutting quality and delivery reliability. At the same time, openness, transparency, appreciation and motivation are important to us.
We use our tens of years of experience every day for the cooperation with our customers and the economic success.
Only in this way is proactive action possible – a must for individual requirements.
We have been reducing emissions in steel processing continuously for years and are getting them close to their theoretical optimum. That is why we are part of the network for energy and resource efficiency of the SIHK [South West Chamber of Industry and Commerce] (REGINEE Südwestfalen) and thereby support the goals of the Federal Republic of Germany with regard to the achievement of energy and climate policy. This requires fundamental technological changes in machinery.
This also applies to environmental protection:
- No use of hazardous substances.
- Waste reduced to a minimum.
- Hazardous waste disposed of by specialist companies.
- Use of the latest heating and air conditioning systems with low energy consumption, substances hazardous to water being stored in special containers.
- Waste water is fed via oil separators into the sewage system.
- Use of modern and power-saving ligth sources.
We are every day conscious of our responsibility.
