The Waelzholz headquarters

Administrative offices, engineering, a broad product spectrum

Due to Waelzholz’s historical development, several production sites are located in Hagen. Here, in the Hagen-Hohenlimburg district, is where the company was founded. Today, the company headquarters as well as the central Materials Technology, Process Development and Quality Management divisions are located in Hagen-Fley.

The Hagen production sites in Fley, Kabel, Halden and Hohenlimburg manufacture approximately 75 percent of the production volume of the entire Waelzholz Group. The product spectrum in Hagen covers a wide range of cold rolled, non-tempered and martensitic hardened and tempered steel strip, flat wire products and shaped wire products. Stainless precision steel strip is also being produced in Hagen. In addition, special technologies such as LIN rolling or conductive high-speed hardening and tempering, facilitate the production of highly-specialized products.

The factories in Hagen also manufacture electrical steel strip for applications related to power generation and transmission. Our 180 m long continuous annealing furnace with its integrated coating technology for insulating varnishes and bonding varnish precisely calibrates the magnetic properties of the steel strip.
