We seek to be the best in understanding the applications for which our customers use our products and services. Knowing how our products function within our customers’ production processes and products helps us to develop and deliver the solutions that best meet their requirements, and, through that, we create value for our customers.
Transforming steel wire and applying unique coating technologies form our core business. Depending on our customers’ requirements, we draw wire in different diameters and strengths, even as thin as ultrafine fibers of one micron. We group the wires into cords, ropes and strands, weave or knit them into fabric, or process them into an end product. The coatings we apply reduce friction, improve corrosion resistance, or enhance adhesion with other materials. We also develop products and solutions that are made of other metals and materials. This is part of our strategy to drive creativity beyond steel.
