The ideal combination for giving lots of momentum: [Material distributor, service provider and developer of innovative product ideas]

Our origins lie in distribution. Our strength today extends far beyond materials: We remain by your side as a strong partner along the complete supply chain. We therefore also support you with numerous services in processing and logistics. In addition, you can also get innovative products from us that can make the difference in many branches.

Material distributor

As one of the largest family-led, integrated distribution and production companies in the steel and metal industry in Germany, the Heine+Beisswenger Group traditionally stands for a perfectly matched, broad storage and delivery program. We are producer-independent, offering warehousing and a nationwide network of branches with contact partners for every region. Our broad range of steels, stainless steels and non-ferrous metals is continuously being expanded with new materials and is oriented towards future market requirements.


Service provider

The logical extension of our role as a materials distributor: We satisfy high customer demands, not only through our broad range of products but also with an efficient logistics chain and a large spectrum of additional services along the value chain – from processing and machining services to materials management and digital logistics services.


H+B product developments

Apart from our passion for distribution and strong services, we offer customized production solutions according to Industry 4.0. Additionally, we also develop innovative products based on our many years of materials know-how and our extensive engineering and production competence.


Values that stand for reliability

Our values derive from our long tradition as a family company.  They not only serve as a reference point for our employees' daily work, but also as a reliable compass for stable customer relationships.

H+B Code of Conduct

The corporate Code of Conduct builds on our principles, beliefs and values, which have been developed over many decades, and illustrates how we live them in everyday business. 

This is what we are made of: The eight columns of our company

Our association work

We have always been committed to working in various associations so that we do not miss any out on any movements in the branch.

In the Bundesverband Deutscher Stahlhandel BDS, for example, we continuously learn the latest news about markets and trends and keep ourselves up to date about technical and legal standards.

In the German Eastern Business Association and its supporting organizations such as the Federation of German Industries (BDI), we have valuable contacts with relevant economic players, suppliers and customers in Germany and large parts of Eastern Europe, Southern Europe and Central Asia.

Thanks to our membership of Wirtschaftsverband Großhandel Metallhalbzeug e.V. (WGM) – the specialist organization for German and European distributors and processors of non-ferrous semi-finished products with more than 80 member companies – we are part of another important network, allowing us to enjoy the benefits of important information, training content, consultancy services and exciting projects.

As a member of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Stahl- und Metalldistribution (ARGE-SMD), which represents the interests of Austrian distributors of steel and non-ferrous metals, we are always informed about the needs of our customers in Austria in order to convince them with our products and services on site. With a further 28 member companies, the platform is ideal for exchanging views on the economy, industry trends and the challenges of the steel industry.

Firmly anchored in the mid-sized sector as a family company

H+B was founded over 120 years ago. Today we are one of the largest family-led steel and metal distribution companies in Germany. Our tradition started with our founder Ferdinand Heine in 1901 and has continued with every generation. For example, innovations build a constant part of our business model and business processes. Whether in logistics, in warehousing, as a result of our broad materials know-how or our innovative production branch – fresh ideas always match our old maxim: that we want to excite our customers.

Because many of our customers are also family companies, they are confident that we know their requirements deriving from our own experience. We live the values of our family company in every business relation, because customer closeness and personal contact with our business partners are crucial.
