Ukraine conflict

The situation in Ukraine is having an impact on supply chain, deadline and material prices. 
Some producers of semi-finished steel are currently out of the market due to the uncertain situation regarding the supply of input material and energy prices. This has an impact on supply and prices. We currently offer a very well-stocked range of products with excellent delivery capability. However, it is still advisable to plan for secured requirements in good time. It's our pleasure to support you in this!

Metalnews: February 2022

Market situation

The procurement situation remains tense. Delivery dates for special products of half a year and more are not uncommon. Due to increased energy costs and difficult availability, prices for most products continue to rise. Brütsch/Rüegger Metals still has a very well stocked range of products with an excellent delivery capacity. However, it is advisable to plan for special products in good time. We will be happy to support you in this.

3D laser processing for tubes and profiles

Thanks to the latest laser cutting technology, we can offer you a high-quality service for the efficient processing of tubes and hollow profiles with a wide range of shaping options.

3D lasering is a promising machining process for tubes and profiles of all kinds. As a central addition to our full range of long products, we now offer this machining service. This unique combination of material expertise and manufacturing know-how opens up innovative design possibilities with highly effective production processes. Structural designs are often made from welded tube sections. Here, 3D laser processing offers the unsurpassable advantage of being able to produce absolutely accurate saddle cuts with the minimum of effort and also to professionally chamfer the cut edges for subsequent welding processes - all in one work step!


Mr. Mergim Dzemailji, Deputy Head of Warehouse and Logistics / Work Preparation, joined us on 1 March 2007 and is now celebrating his 15th anniversary in 2022.

We offer our warmest congratulations!

New functions

As an industry pioneer for eShop solutions, we are your service-oriented partner and, true to our motto metal at your service, strive to simplify and accompany your procurement process in the best possible way. Metalshop offers you several new functions thanks to real-time data availability:

Order management / open positions

The order management gives you a quick overview of the current status of your orders. In the order detail, you also have the possibility to view all order-relevant documents. You can view and download the material certificates of delivered order items as well as track shipments by courier service. Via the open positions menu of the user account, you can quickly find your orders with outstanding delivery positions.

Offer management

The offer management shows you all open offers. The details of the offer as well as the validity are quickly visible. Valid offers can be ordered directly and a renewal can be requested for expired offers.

Account statement

Are you looking for an invoice or do you need information on your payment conditions and invoice due dates? You can find this information easily and at any time in the account statement.

Already ordered items

The entry to the hit list via the menu item "Already ordered items" lists all products that can be ordered via the Metalshop and that we have already been allowed to deliver for you. Of course, you can refine this search by means of filter attributes for materials / grades and dimensions. When entering via product, material or shape, "history" articles can be listed via a corresponding attribute.

Product comparison and watch list

A new feature in the Metalshop is the product comparison. Up to four comparable articles can be compared with each other in a table to easily identify differences in article characteristics. You can also add items found in the hit list to your watch list and save them for later.

Market situation

Energy Surcharge

Market supply is still extremely tight. Delivery times are getting longer and longer and prices are rising inexorably. These effects are now compounded by the sharp rise in energy costs, which is prompting producers to levy an energy cost surcharge. The amount of the surcharge depends on the vertical range of manufacture of the semi-finished product and the production location. The surcharge is adjusted monthly by the producers to the current price situation. The factory delivery month will be decisive for the amount of the surcharge. Not all producers have introduced the energy surcharge yet. However, it is very likely that this will be implemented across the board in the short term. We cannot escape this market development and are forced to pass on the corresponding costs. For stock orders, the energy surcharge is integrated into the basic price. In the case of project business with longer delivery times, the energy cost surcharge will be listed on the offer and the order confirmation, provided it is known at an early stage. We regret this development, but assure you that in any case we will only charge the additional costs incurred by us.


Mrs. Barbara Elliker and Mrs. Lucia Marzo-Panno - both Reception/Administration - are taking their well-deserved retirement on 31.12.2021. We would like to thank both of them for their commitment and valuable service to Brütsch/Rüegger Metals and wish them lots of time, great experiences and good health for the next stage of their lives!


Ms Barbara Elliker, Reception/Administration, celebrated her 10-year anniversary on 1.11.21, shortly before her retirement at the end of the year!


Mr. Gian-Andri Ruhstaller started with us on 01.11.2021 as coordinator service department.

We extend a warm welcome to Mr. Ruhstaller and wish him a successful start at Brütsch/Rüegger Metals.

Complete range of engineering steel

We have now been stocking these products in our long goods range for over 10 years and have continued to develop: With over 20 different materials in the diameter range from 20 to 650 mm, almost every need is now covered. Whether through our relationships with steelworks and suppliers, the expansion of our infrastructure or the fulfilment of our customers' quality requirements - we are in the best possible position. Try us out - we will be happy to convince you with our service and price/performance ratio for any order quantity!

No relief on the delivery time and price front!

Brütsch/Rüegger Metals has a very well-stocked assortment of long goods.

However, the increasingly long delivery times and rapidly rising prices are causing some concern. An easing of the situation after the after the summer holidays - the demand overhang remains high.

The motto of concluding framework contracts for larger quantities and special products in good time is more valid than ever.

Metalnews: February 2021


In the steel sector, there has been a massive price increase since the beginning of 2021. Increased market demand is being met by capacity cuts at the mills due to the pandemic.

In addition, alloying elements have become more expensive and the price of steel scrap has skyrocketed. Due to the supply shortage, delivery times have naturally also become longer.

Under these conditions, the procurement situation will remain tense. We therefore recommend early planning for special products and framework contracts.

Expansion of product range: martensitic stainless steel 

New in our stainless assortment 

Round steel 1.4057, hot rolled and drawn/ground 

  • ex stock Ø 20 ... 110 mm
  • ex works bearing Ø 125 ... 400 mm

The material 1.4057 is a rust and acid resistant, martensitic stainless steel. The corrosion resistance is only achieved by hardening the parts. In order to futher improve them, the parts must be well polished. Due to its high stability, it is mainly used for machine components that are subject to heavy loads. 


  • very good polishability
  • very good strength 
  • good corrosion resistance 
  • good mechanical properties 
  • good weldability 

Round steel 1.4112, hot-rolled and turned/rough-peeled 

  • ex stock Ø 25 ... 130 mm
  • ex works bearing Ø 140 ... 300 mm

The material 1.4.112 is a stainless steel with high hardness, wear resistance and good cutting propertie due to its higher carbon content. This is at the expense of corrosion resistance! Thanks to its mechanical properties, this stainless steel is typically used as well as knife steel. The machinability, however, is very limited. 


  • very good polishability
  • high wear resistance 
  • good mechanical properties
  • medium machinability 
  • very poor machinability

Mr. Diego Ortelli, Purchase/Materials Management, has left our company on 31.05.2020. We wish Mr. Ortelli personally and professionally much success and all the best. 


Opinions and forecasts regarding further developments in the steel sector vary widely. A poorer functioning of international supply chains would rather indicate a shortage of supply and longer delivery times. This would cause prices to rise. However, due to the rather declining propensity to invest worldwide, demand is likely to decline and prices are likely to come under pressure. However, we consider the scope for a price collapse to be very limited, as we are already at a low price level and steel producers will do everything possible to keep prices stable, also out of operational necessity.

We at Brütsch/Rüegger Metals place a high degree of piracy in our day-to-day delivery capability and have prudently planned our stock in advance to avoid supply bottlenecks. The availability and ability to deliver, especially for special products and custom-made items, is very difficult to estimate from today's perspective. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, we recommend that you make careful and early arrangements in this regard.

We are happy to advise you, just ask us

Dienstleistung Components

Machine parts and components according to customer drawings

In addition to just-in-time production, outsourcing is the second major trend that has led to massive change in the manufacturing industry. Historically, outsourcing services have been provided by manufacturing companies. Advantages in this constellation are certainly the competence in the area of manufacturing processes and the favorable cost situation resulting from a high utilization of production facilities. In contrast to the aforementioned variant, Brütsch/Rüegger Metals offers outsourcing based on material competence. For added value, Brütsch/Rüegger Metals relies on a comprehensive network from our existing customer base. As a materials supplier, we are thus also in a position to offer you a wide range of manufacturing technologies.

Brütsch/Rüegger Metals is thus also a competent full-service provider for outsourcing services, rounded off by a practical system for controlling and monitoring (logistics) processes.

The extremely strong and sustained demand for steel products has led to massively longer delivery times. In the case of individual special products, delivery times for new purchases are already in 2019. In line with this development, procurement prices have already risen sharply and the mills have announced further price increases. Thanks to prudent material planning, we continue to have a well-stocked inventory.

However, it is advisable to stock up and secure any special products and/or major requirements at an early stage so that there are no unpleasant surprises. Our sales team is at your disposal with words and deeds.

Quality first

Quality management system according to ISO 2001:2015

As part of the recertification audit according to the revision of ISO 9001:2015 standards by SQS, our quality management system was checked both for its conformity to the standards and for its functionality. By constantly optimizing our processes, we were able to successfully pass this recertification according to the new standard without any conditions.

In the future, you can continue to count on our services and the processes they require being continuously adapted to your individual needs. In this way, we want to constantly improve our service and maintain it at the highest level, true to our motto.
