steel mill in Söderfors, Sweden dates back to an old anchor forge founded
In the 19th century the forge was extended by steel making and rolling
mills and became part of Söderforsgatan Bruks AB.
In 1907 the plant was sold to Stora Kopparberg Bergslagen.
The Söderfors works merged with Fagersta AB in 1982 and were taken over by
the French Eramet Group ten years later.
The eastern part of the site (rolling mill, forge and foundry) were sold
subsequently to Scana Steel and the Akers group.
Scana Steel today runs a medium section rolling mill, a hammer forge and a
1000 ton forging press in Söderfors.
