Galvanising plant MEISER St.Ingbert
In the summer of 1998 MEISER requires the strip coating section of the St. Ingbert wire works (formerly Saarstahl AG), which is threatened by closure. Against the background that this area of the company was at the time a major customer of our steel processing business in Schmelz-Limbach, they see the opportunity to retain this supply connection while at the same time integrating the strip coating products into the product range of MEISER. The production locations, many of which have been neglected for years, are extensively refurbished and modernised by MEISER in the coming four years up to 2002 with a comprehensive investment programme to the amount of approximately €8.5 million. In addition to the reconstruction of the existing strip galvanising plant, the development of a second strip galvanising line that is fully in line with state-of-the-art technology is at the forefront.
Since final commissioning in the year 2002, MEISER has had one of the most modern and efficient narrow strip galvanising plants in Europe. The approximately 100 metre-long, fully automatic galvanising line satisfies the highest quality demands and naturally fulfils all of the current environmental standards. In 2005 further investments are completed in the strip coating field. From now on, the barrel hoop product supplements the MEISER product range. The company's own production plants guarantee flexible supplies to the barrel manufacturers, most of which are located in France. Furthermore, the galvanised steel strip is mainly used today as earthing straps and as the starting product for the manufacture of stamped and bent components.
Apart from the grating activities, the St. Ingbert site is very important for MEISER and ensures the requisite diversification within the company.
