History of ANDRITZ Sundwig

Steps along the way …

The beginnings of ANDRITZ Sundwig go back to the year 1689, when the entrepreneur Johann Bernhard von der Becke began, to manufacture forged buckles in Sundwig, Germany. In 1864, the firm expanded by setting up an iron foundry and machine works and has continued its development to become the present day company.

ANDRITZ acquired 75% of the limited partnership interest in Sundwiger-Eisenhütte Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. in 1998.

ANDRITZ Sundwig GmbH’s product range today comprises turnkey systems for production and processing of cold-rolled strip made of stainless steel, coated metals, non-ferrous metals, and special materials.
