Starting Point

The supply and service chain in the steel and metal industry is highly inefficient. To this day, transactions are often carried out by telephone or fax. A continuous digital order and production management is rarely available. In order to eliminate these inefficiencies at all levels of the supply and service chain, the digitalisation of the steel and metal industry is inevitable.


We think outside the box.


Inspired by his time in Silicon Valley, Gisbert Rühl, CEO of Klöckner & Co SE, initiated the foundation of the internal innovation hub in Berlin - kloeckner.i GmbH - in 2014.

The foundation for the digitalisation of Klöckner & Co and the entire industry was set. Starting in the coworking space "betahaus" with 2 employees, today around 90 developers, data analysts, online marketing experts and product managers work on digital tools and their commercialization. With the Kloeckner online shop and the Kloeckner marketplace as an integrated platform solution, the contract portal, ERP solutions, interfaces to company-internal merchandise management systems and many other solutions, we are addressing the goal of digitising the steel and metal industry.
