Business Area Europe

Steelmaking is deeply ingrained in Nyby. Nearly 200 years after the mill’s founding, Nyby continues to be recognized worldwide for uniquely customized, exceptionally high performance stainless steel.
Operating with highly sophisticated equipment and wide expertise, Outokumpu’s Nyby mill is in a class of its own. Located in Torshälla, Sweden, Nyby produces cold-rolled coil and sheet products from black hot band, material primarily sourced from Outokumpu’s Avesta melt shop.

Nyby’s operation focuses on Pro family grades, including high-alloyed grades like Ultra, duplex grades (Forta) and heat-resistant grades (Therma). Products are manufactured in thicknesses ranging from 0.4 mm to 4.5 mm.

Specialized services are standard business for the skilled Nyby workforce. The mill also produces added value products, including temper-rolled, welding strips, fine-flatness tolerances and patterned surfaces designed to meet exacting customer specifications.

Nyby’s tradition of excellence is rooted in a long heritage of steelmaking. The Nyby mill was founded in 1829 where documented production operations in the area can be traced to the 15th century.
