Several terms from an order of piping materials:

Bgrp. (Bestellgruppe?)
Kst. (Kostenstelle?)
WAZ (Warenzeichen?)
Stg Rohre (Steige ??)
Thank you!

Explanation:
From my experience ordering this kind of stuff, I can offer the following guesses:
Komm. I've seen this as "Kommissionsnummer", i.e. an identification number for the part (part number), which should be different for every position on the order, but sometimes this is used also for numbering the positions on the order 1,2,3,4,5...)
Bgrp. could be "Baugruppe", i.e. an assembly of several parts.
Kst. I think your guess is right.
WAZ I have no idea. Stg. Rohre I can't imagine what this is either, but Steige sounds strange to me - sith Steige I associate some flat box like what you buy peaches in, and tubes would probably be sold by piece or y meter. I think it may have something to do with the material, but I am not sure.
Regards,
Uta

You may want to check the website of George Fisher company, they make all kinds of piping and fittings (all made from plastic)and sell them all over the world - please use a search engine to find them because both georgefisher.com and gf.com are taken by other companies

Explanation:
Going by Bertelsmann (W.d.Abkürzungen) and Ernst (W. d. industr. Technik) at least, your guesses are probably as good as any. Bertelsmnn lists WAZ as Wochenarbeitszeit, which doesnt sound promising. Bgrp. might also stand for Baugruppe, but this is less likely in pipes than in many other technologies. I'd go for a limited Web search, which you probably have already done. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
