WHAT WOULD YOU AND WE BE WITHOUT OUR DREAMS?

- WILLY KORF

A LIFE DEDICATED TO STEEL

Entrepreneur Willy Korf was the founder of KORF STEEL. His mini steel mills and new energy-saving technologies revolutionized the steel industry – not only in Germany but across the world in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and East Asia. He was the first European steel manufacturer to bring his industrial innovations to the US. In 1969, he built his first mini steel mill in Georgetown, South Carolina. He was a legend in the steel industry, and a man of great vision who was always willing to experiment, seek out new talent, and develop himself – no matter what difficulties he encountered.
