Building on the future

Our USP is the development and production of customized special profiles made of steel and non-ferrous metals. We purchase steel strips, which are formed to the desired cross-section using the roll-forming process. This process takes place at normal room temperature without additional energy input. In addition, roll forming yields a very high material utilization rate. Due to these factors and the excellent recyclability of steel, the life cycle assessment of roll forming is remarkably positive.

Looking at the entire value chain, the focus is on the following issues:

  • Regional procurement and production ensure flexibility and maximum availability. There are also competitive advantages because of the reduced freight costs and short communication paths.
  • Environmentally friendly transport: In 1986, the Gresten production plant received a narrow-gauge rail connection. Since then, the necessary primary material and the resulting scrap have been delivered and transported mainly by rail, which is generally environmentally friendly.
  • We want to make consistent use of potential savings and push ahead with the energy transition.
  • Carbon neutrality in terms of energy sources: This project is scheduled to be completed at our production sites in Austria by 2024 and in Germany by 2026.
  • Corporate Carbon Footprint: In addition to direct CO2 emissions, emissions that aren't within our direct sphere of influence (Scope 1 – 3) are also taken into account.
