The Group’s steel activities date back to 1948, when VITTORIO CAUVIN became the agent for United States Steel, the largest steel producer in the United States. Established in 1966, ACCIAI DI QUALITÀ is now one of the main European service centres for the distribution and processing of high-quality carbon steel plates and coils. In 2001 the ThyssenKrupp Group acquired a 24.9% stake in the company, confirming ACCIAI DI QUALITÀ as their exclusive distributor of quenched and tempered, high-resistance and wear-resistant steel plates in the Italian market.
After the merger of the subsidiary STEELMET in 2014, ACCIAI DI QUALITÀ further strengthened its presence in the North-East of Italy. In 2002 STEELSTOCK, a company specialized in marketing flat products in commercial qualities, was established in Brescia. The sales of ACCIAI DI QUALITÀ’s products are managed by the subsidiary AGENZIE CAUVIN, which act also as an agent for the sale of the steel plates manufactured by ThyssenKrupp Stahl for the Italian market.
