If you are looking for stainless steel profiles, you have certainly come across the name of Montanstahl. Montanstahl is one of the very few companies in the world in this business and in the past years has significantly invested in the best technology in order to become the best in its field.

The company uses stainless steel to produce a range of profiles that are mainly used in factories and machinery. Among the most unique profiles offered by Montanstahl, there are the stainless steel c channels, well depicted on the website and also described in the company’s complete list of steel alloys.

But why don’t other companies concentrate much on stainless steel? Why has Montanstahl, on the other hand, decided to invest in it? Keep on reading to find out!


The company was founded in 1983 in Stabio, Switzerland, and is one of the world’s leading companies in the field of steel and stainless steel. Montanstahl was one of the very few companies on the market that recognised the potential of stainless steel already in the early 1990s and, almost immediately decided to invest in this particular material.

The idea was so successful that in just a few years, specifically in 2005, the company founded its first subsidiary called ‘Stainless Structurals’ in the USA, which still today is committed to the distribution of stainless steel merchant bars.

For Montanstahl, this was just the beginning of a long series of success stories. As early as 2012 the company opened a second subsidiary called ‘Stainless Structurals’ in Singapore. Today the company, which was once just a small Swiss enterprise, is able to serve and cooperate with more than 60 countries around the world.


C profiles are standard profiles and are certainly among Montanstahl’s most widely used and requested types. There are mainly two varieties: hot rolled C profiles and laser-welded C profiles. The main difference between the two is that the former have conical flanges, while the latter have parallel flanges.

The most common applications of this product are commerce, industry, and construction equipment. As these profiles are made of stainless steel, their composition is particularly flexible and their construction is very quick and economical.

The dimensions of these profiles can be easily found on Montanstahl’s official website, where it is possible to check the measurements according to European, American, and Asian standards. This way, Montanstahl ensures that everyone can find the information they need, no matter where they are in the world.


Many other types of stainless steel profiles are available. The company also produces other models, which are often named after their shape. These include angle profiles, U-profiles, T-profiles, and beams. Moreover, according to customer requirements, Montanstahl can produce any type of profile with equal or unequal sides.

The list of these products can be easily found on the official website, where customers can also find attached general requirements that certify the quality of the product. When the perfect profile has been found, all that is left to do is request a quote or contact the company. In this case, all it takes is to press a button and enter the relevant data. Easy, isn’t it?


Montanstahl is among the few companies worldwide able to offer its customers quality stainless steel products. This is because stainless steel requires special machinery and appropriate technology and, also, it is difficult to ship.

However, Montanstahl decided to invest in this field from the earliest days and, indeed, the company now enjoys a great reputation for this reason. Why did Montanstahl take this decision? The reason is that, in addition to the few shortcomings listed above, this material brings with it a lot of advantages.

First and foremost is durability, because stainless steel is capable of lasting a very long time. Furthermore, it is waterproof, which means that any stains or external agents can be easily removed from the product, and it can withstand high temperatures without the risk of corrosion, which is what mainly characterizes stainless steel. Moreover, those profiles are produced from scrap and can therefore also be reused. This makes it much easier to save natural resources.

Montanstahl provides its customers with a catalogue of product types and sizes that are referred to as ‘standard’. This designation is due to the fact that the firm already offers finished products that can simply be purchased by the customer. However, it may happen that some companies or private customers need a product that does not comply with conventional measurements.

Basically, they need a profile that is tailor-made. Montanstahl is always willing to listen to the ideas and plans of its customers who have special needs because it is through collaboration that it is possible to create a profile as close as possible to what the client envisaged.
