We‘ve all pulled together: Planners, designers, engineers, skilled craftsmen and many more – the development, project planning and implementation of the world’s most advanced wire rod rolling mill was highly complex. So we are especially pleased and proud that we were able to stay on schedule and realize our ideas as planned. We have achieved great things as a team working with absolute professionalism. Our customers will also experience the effects of these progressive ideas in joint projects.

Our vision becomes a reality

The wire rod rolling mill sets new standards in the industry. It illustrates our passion for technology and enables us to continue working for progress every day. Uncompromising quality and optimised cooperation made the implementation of this unique project possible – these criteria are prioritised by all levels of voestalpine employees distinguishing their work. Now we’ve actually done it and are going into production – and it’s something we always firmly believed we‘d achieve from the outset. It’s great that our commitment has been acknowledged in this way.
