Wuppermann's newest and most modern site for flat products
The newest and most modern Wuppermann site for flat products started its production in 2016. A high-tech combined pickling and hot-dip galvanizing line with a processing capacity of 500,000 tonnes of steel per year is the heart of the site.
Today, Wuppermann Hungary produces flat products from hot-rolled strip steel by pickling, galvanizing, slitting and cold re-rolling. The plant also specialises in particular in products with high corrosion protection. In addition to hot-dip galvanized strip steel with a zinc or zinc-magnesium coating on both sides, Wuppermann Hungary also produces galvanized hot-rolled strip with high-performance foil, our so-called WProtect. We have customers for our flat products from Hungary in numerous industries, including the fittings, automotive, constructionand silo industries.
At the end of 2021, the Hungarian site installed a photovoltaic system on the roofs oft he production hall, which will save the plant around 775 tonnes of CO2 annually. Construction work for a new R&D competence centre also started at the beginning of 2022. Today, Wuppermann Hungary employs over 180 people.
