Global success for metallurgy from Austria

18 November 2013

Expertise and high-quality engineering combined with customised turn-key solutions have secured INTECO's position as world leader in the field of Special Metallurgy.

INTECO has been producing machinery in the fields of Special Metallurgy and Secondary Metallurgy since 1973 and provides customised turn-key solutions for complete steelmaking plants. The Austrian group has its headquarters in Bruck an der Mur and is a global engineering and plant construction company with subsidiaries in China, Germany, India and the USA. The company is the world leader in Special Metallurgy.

The metal materials processed by INTECO meet the challenges of every customer requirement, regardless of whether it’s an artificial hip implant or an aircraft turbine with extremely rapid rotation. The company’s in-house research department is constantly producing technological innovations, allowing INTECO to set new standards in the industry. One example is the so-called Electro Slag Rapid Remelting plant, which was sold to an Italian steel manufacturer.

The majority of INTECO shares are family-owned and in 2012 group revenue totalled EUR 94m, with 50% generated in Europe and 50% overseas. Exports accounted for over 90%.

The Asian market is proving more dynamic at present than the market in Europe. The best proof of this is a large-scale tender currently underway in South Korea, where INTECO is building a complete steelmaking plant for a forging company. The company is also well represented in China. In the future INTECO will focus more strongly on the North American market and also has its sights set on Russia and Brazil.
