Successful worldwide

For almost 100 years

As a diversified, globally-active conglomerate, we are focused on offering both a wide range of standard products and customer-specific solutions in our target markets.

The three business areas of welding technology, tungsten components and construction chemicals form the basis of our company activities. It is not the short-term success that counts here; much more important is the steady expansion of the core business areas as long-term growth sectors.

A strong grouping of our own sales and production companies, as well as exclusive partners, forms a solid network for our worldwide success.

The openness to technological innovation, also outside our core business areas, is shown by the involvement in a company which specialises in innovative recycling and plant construction.
