Verkets karakteristisk siluetten med fyra rostugnar kom till mellan 1910 och 1915. Under 1970 talet omstrukurerades hela svenska järnindustri och idag finns bara en liten del av verksamheten kvar.

The mills characteristic silhouette with four roasting furnaces came about between 1910 and 1915. During the seventies the whole of the Swedish steel industry was restructured and today only a small part of the operations are in operation.
