Value Creation in Key Industries
Castolin Eutectic is a worldwide leader of application solutions in maintenance, repair and wear protection. More than 100 years of experience in welding, brazing and thermal spraying technologies stand for professional and innovative solutions.
The companies of the Castolin Eutectic business are globally active in all industrialized nations. This geographic diversification is accompanied by the diversification in various industries. The company develops, manufactures and distributes products and services around welding, soldering and thermal coating and thereby is well positioned to profit from booming markets. The development activities in the Castolin Eutectic field are geared towards the continuous enhancement of innovative solutions for specific applications in selected key industries and sectors.
The relatively young market segment „Services“ provides a number of possibilities. We offer our customers process applications in our own workshops with higher added value. Among other things with this service we want to strengthen customer loyalty.
Castolin Eutectic always operates production facilities as close as possible to the respective customers. Manufacturing and service locations are to be found in Ireland, Poland, France, Italy, China, Singapore, the UK, UAE/Dubai, USA, Canada, Mexico and Russia. The company further operates service workshops at numerous sites for various industrial applications in the areas of welding, soldering and thermal coating. A total of 832 staff members are currently employed in our industrial production facilities and service workshops (770 in the previous year). Because of modernizing and expanding production facilities over the course of the previous fiscal years, the division has been able to maintain its competitive edge and to optimally respond to customer demands.
Our recent investment in expanding boiler coating activities has strengthened our market position and with the acquisition of Canada-based FMP we have been able to expand our know-how and product range to include organic sealants. Boiler coating activities are now a cornerstone of our growth strategy in the power, waste-to-energy and petrochemical industries.
Our high-performance global R & D departments have developed a great deal of new equipment, alloys and processes in recent decades, including Alloy®, a patented non-magnetic alloy boiler coating, the PTA torch and the TeroLink® application software.
Castolin Eutectic was able to increase its total sales by 3.2 % in the fiscal year 2017.
