Production.

Quality on the track.

At our Möllenhagen location we operate one of the largest works for the production of prestress concrete products in Europe with efficient production plants and large storage and loading capacity. This allows us to respond flexibly and quickly to customer enquiries from home and abroad.

Our production control system (MES), developed in-house, monitors and documents the most important production processes and quality parameters. With it, we ensure that the respective required parameters are met in all stages of the production process. The assembling and feeding of the prestressing steel is also fully-automated using plants developed especially for this purpose. With our technologies we set industry standards.
