Sections maker Mannstaedt adds processing lines

Monday, 09 October 2006

Mannstaedt, a German producer and processor of hot-rolled sections that last year was sold by Corus to Georgsmarienhütte, is currently expanding its downstream facilities.

At its site in Troisdorf near Cologne, the company is building a new line to manufacture tow-bars for vehicles which is due to be ready at the end of the year, its managing director Helge Horn tells Steel Business Briefing. By late 2007, it will also add saws and other processing equipment for special sections for fork lift trucks.

The company operates three rolling mills to produce special sections from square blooms, and further processes them into finished parts for utility vehicles, hinges in cars and joints for sheet piling. According to Horn, the company is in the process of developing further parts for finished assembly into fork lifts and other utility vehicles, which will be ready for the market next year.

Regarding Mannstaedt’s sale by Corus, Horn notes that the move came naturally, “as Mannstaedt keeps strengthening its downstream activity” and thus fits better into GMH’s organisation.
