The production of wire rod constitutes about two thirds of the total rolling mill production volume and is therefore a "weighty" factor. Plain wire rod is processed by our clients to various reinforcement products like for example wire mesh, lattice girders, reinforcing wire or spacers. Ribbed wire rod is exclusively processed internally to reinforcing wire rod in coils or welded to wire mesh at the group's wire processing plants. The high in-house production depth of the group's processing plants makes it possible to react very flexibly to the requirements of the construction industry.
