Establishment as a state company

OTELINOX was established on June 01 1974, following an international auction won by Japanese companies NISSHIN STEEL CO Ltd. for manufacturing of cold rolled stainless steel strips and sheets and DAIDO STEEL Co. for manufacturing of hot rolled small profiles and wire rod.


Production start in stainless-steel products (2B plant)

In November 1979 the stainless-steel sheets and strips production plant have been commissioned. Japanese companies HITACHI, MITSUBISHI and NISSHIN STEEL brought the know-how.



Receives QMS and IMS certification

Otelinox receives QMS and IMS certification including ISO 9002, 9001, 14001 as well as ISO TS 16949 and OHSAS 18001


Samsung C&T Deutschland GMBH acquires majority of shares (51%)

In October 1997, SAMSUNG DEUTSCHLAND GmbH – a branch of SAMSUNG CORPORATION Korea, has acquired the main package of shares (51%) of OTELINOX S.A. Now, Samsung C&T Deutschland GmbH holds 99.91% of OTELINOX social capital.



Revamping of old cold rolling mill ZM1

Starting 1998 until 2001, SAMSUNG dedicates itself to rebuild and develop OTELINOX, so this will have, in the nearest future, an important role in the Romanian economy, as well as within SAMSUNG group. A large program of investments was implemented, aiming for the upgrade and automate of the equipment, but also new investments. Currently, Rolling Mill no.1 Plant has been modernized to satisfy the highest international standards.


Completion of narrow precision mill (no.2)

In July 2002, a large investment was finalized, by creating a new production unit – Rolling Mill no.2 Plant. The plant produces thin and ultra-thin stainless steel narrow strips with thickness between 0.05 and 0.8 mm and widths between 5 and 650 mm.


Installation of new degreasing line

In order to increase capacity of our precision products and to improve surface quality, we installed a new modern degreasing line in Rolling Mill No. 2 Plant.



Completion of wide precision mill (no.3) & New facility for multi-coils and increase spooling capacity

In April 2010, a new production unit was finalized – Rolling Mill no.3 Plant. The project for the new production unit started in September 2007 and the works were of large scale. This new Rolling Mill produces high precision stainless steel wide strips, with thickness between 0.1 and 1.5 mm and widths between 30 and 1250 mm. The cold rolling mill is the third high performance Sendzimir rolling mill in Otelinox.


Implementation of 3 new precision slitting lines, one laser welding line in MC, new spooling and deburring line

Starting with 2012 we initiated a process to increase our capabilities with 3 new precision slitting lines, one laser welding line on multi-coil line, one spooling and deburring line in order to improve our processes and technologies, to update our regulations and to develop ourselves as specialist and as humans.


Transition to the current version of ISO9001, ISO14001 and IATF16949

The ISO 9001 applies to all the sites of the organization. At the same time, IATF 16949 is applicable for the organization sites that produce service parts or parts for car assembly, not the aftermarket parts. The ISO 9001 focuses on customer satisfaction, while the IATF 16949 focuses on customer-specific requirements.



Implementation of wide degreasing line & Migration from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001

In 2020 we decided to increase our capacity by installing a wide degreasing line. Our current production capacity has been expanded by efforts of all members from previously ~60.000 MT/year to ~70.000 MT/year.

Also, due to the fact that the OHSAS 18001 standard was withdrawn, it was needed to be replaced with ISO 45001. This standard is the reference that specifies the requirements of an occupational health and safety management system, together with the guidelines, which allows an organization to and improve performance in the prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses.


New investment started

In June 2022 a large program of investments was started in order to have a full new production line. For increasing our capabilities, we decided to purchase 3 new production lines: rolling mill, bright annealing and spooling and modernize 4 existing lines.
