Welcome to WISCO Tailored Blanks, the world market leader and your partner in the sector of tailored products!
For more than 20 years we have been playing a major role in advancing body and automotive technology – at 15 locations around the world. In the beginning as ThyssenKrupp Tailored Blanks and now as part of WISCO, we cover every base – from intelligent materials to ready-to-fit parts.
In May 2011, in the course of a strategic alignment the Executive Board of ThyssenKrupp AG decided to detach its Tailored Blank business in line with a best owner solution. The closing takes place on July 31, 2013.
With WISCO, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe found a best owner for WISCO Tailored Blanks (formerly ThyssenKrupp Tailored Blanks) that will strategically develop the tailored product business and expand its market presence worldwide. The new owner WISCO, an internationally successful and fast-growing company located in Wuhan, China, achieved sales of 26.0 billion euros in 2011 with an annual production of 36.0 million tons of steel. WISCO is one of the largest steel producers worldwide.
ThyssenKrupp Tailored Blanks, the market leader in producing customized metal solutions for the automotive industry, is now being integrated in the WISCO Group. With sales of roughly 700 million euros WISCO Tailored Blanks employs around 950 people worldwide.
Numerous agreements were concluded with the previous owner ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe that will ensure among other things the supply of raw material. In addition to that, there are no changes in the organization so that the known and proven contact persons remain the same.
