Stainless Steel Business

Professional and Vertically Integrated Steelmaking

Entering the stainless steel industry in 1993, Walsin Lihwa is now an international leader in stainless steel products. The company produces billets, slabs, ingots, hot-rolled bars, cold- and hot-rolled coils, wire rods, cold-finished bar, seamless pipes and tubes, and precision foils, featuring effective downstream and upstream supply chain integration to enable production flexibility, streamlined production, as well as delivery and service optimization through its global business presence. The company’s annual capacity of billets amounts to 1 million tons and its output of stainless steel long products is also one of the highest in the world. In 2022, Walsin Lihwa’s investment in the Italy-based Cogne Acciai Speciali, a European leader in stainless steel bars and wire rods, further facilitates the company’s international market development by providing more high added-value products and high-end applications. By doing so, Walsin Lihwa will become even more complementary and synergistic with customers in terms of equipment, distribution channels, products, and technologies to strengthen overall competitiveness and consolidate its global leadership in stainless steel bars and wire rods.
