A short history, dense with events

ASO Cromsteel S.A. was founded in 1999 in Targoviste, near Bucharest, as “Cromsteel Industries S.A.”, thanks to a project led by Italian entrepreneurs. In quite a short timespan the company was transformed from a production works for semi-finished and low precision bars to a full-cycle manufacturing plant for high technology products for hydraulics and linear motion.
Dedicated investments, cutting-edge know-how contributed by international specialists, and a strong commercial activity have led ASO Cromsteel S.A. from an annual turnover of few thousand Euros to over 70 millions.
Today we employ a staff of 540 people in our 35,000 m2 (on our 100,000 m2 land property) in Targoviste. The ongoing automation effort in several production processes will allow to further improve delivery time and service to all our customers, in any part of the world.

The wide product range of ASO Cromsteel is unmatched: chrome plated steel bars, chrome plated stainless steel bars, chrome plated steel tubes, skived and roller burnished tubes, honed tubes, cylinder tubes, telescopic tubes, precision linear shafts, all in a very wide diameter range, from small sizes for the pneumatic industry to the biggest diameters for highly specialized and heavy duty equipment.
