We are a global player. Today, we deliver our quality products from Bochum to over 50 nations on earth.

We are a skilled partner for our customers in tapping emerging markets. We are committed to more than just “Made in Germany”, but also “Created in Germany”, which we see as our challenge and duty.

Together with our customers, we are taking steps towards sustainable environmental protection. Products are often coated prior to delivery. Under hard working conditions, this coating lasts no more than a few minutes.

SWB products don’t require this coating. Their quality can be “seen” in the truest sense of the word. At the same time, we’re saving the environment. In this way, we live up to our reputation.

Our mission is to help our customers solve their problems. One of the ways that we do this is by supplying the best value, highest quality wear parts and spare parts to our customers on time, every time.

AMSCO has traveled extensively to identify and partner with the world’s best alloy and manganese foundries. We are proud to be the exclusive North American sales representative for Stahlwerke Bochum GmbH (SWB), in Bochum, Germany. The SWB differentially heat-treated alloy hammers have been the benchmark of the metal recycling industry ever since they were introduced to the North American marketplace in 2004.
