Change in the area of steel distribution

The traditional function of fine distribution and thus the Profil of a wholesaler continues to be the core of our business processes: the requirements of a customer group that is regionally structured or segmented according to market criteria are bundled and thus the critical mass rises to a level that enables our orders to be placed directly in the steelworks.

Whereas in the past the products were stored temporarily at the consumer's site in the form of long goods, for example, and only finished at defi nitiven Verbrauch, the backward integration of finishing to the steel trade has already established itself. Instead of the delivery of bars in bundles, the delivery of cut-to-length pieces, for example, takes place in pallets.

This additional service arose from the just-in-time need in the materials management of the processing industry and it is obvious that - in the spirit of further focusing on core competencies - further auxiliary and preparatory operations will be backwardly integrated. 

Today, modern steel trading companies such as Brütsch/Rüegger Metals, which are oriented towards the end consumer, offer various prefabrication operations.


In times of sharply rising raw material prices, the raw material becomes more important. Here the importance of material competence increases equally. In the case of a sequence of several processing steps, a networked outsourcing provider such as Brütsch/Rüegger Metals has the optimum process solution at its disposal, which also has a positive effect on costs.

Manufacturing competence and material competence

In addition to just-in-time production, outsourcing is the second major trend that has led to massive change in the manufacturing industry. Outsourced production capacities have become suppliers and thus outsourcing partners. 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 favourable cost situation resulting from the high utilization of production facilities. However, sourcing and purchasing competence is not always sufficiently guaranteed in manufacturing operations. The materials side, on the other hand, has these competencies and is more and more familiar with production processes.

There is no doubt that Brütsch/Rüegger Metals has material expertise, and there is an extensive network for manufacturing expertise. Enriched with an appropriate system for controlling and monitoring (logistics) processes, Brütsch/Rüegger Metals is a full-service provider of outsourcing services.

No competition to manufacturing companies

A materials supplier such as Brütsch/Rüegger Metals does not compete with manufacturing companies for outsourcing solutions because its market performance is based on the market competence and coordination of its network partners. This is a win-win-win situation in which customers for industrial components benefit equally as network partners (manufacturing companies) and material suppliers such as Brütsch/Rüegger Metals.
