Welcome to the new homepage of EKW GmbH!
The "Eisenberger Klebsandwerke", which was the original name of today's EKW GmbH, has been a family-owned business since it was founded in 1903. The business’s former name makes a direct reference to "luting sand", deposits of which are a unique geological feature of our location and which are still mined in our own quarry to this day.
This natural resource remains an important and significant component of many products manufactured by EKW. And because we have our own source, which in turn makes us relatively independent of imports, we are able to guarantee our customers product and delivery certainty. The EKW product portfolio is also complemented by a steadily growing number of other "high-tech" products, assuring EKW GmbH of an increasingly dominant position in the field of refractory materials, states C.E.O. Michael P. Wiessler.
The plant in Eisenberg/Pfalz was built to incorporate key-technology, manufacturing a comprehensive portfolio of refractory castables, neutral, basic and acidic semi-plastic as well as dry-vibration mixes, all the way to specific materials for a full range of repair and spray work. The described product portfolio thus meets the full range of applications and the demands of today's customers in the fields of steel and iron casting, as well as from the industrial sectors of steel, aluminium, cement, lime, environmental, energy and chemicals, with respect to refractory materials.
Systematic and targeted research & development ensure that our products always reflect the latest in technology and, whenever possible, are tailored to the individual needs of our customers. Innovative products, such as the latest generation of self-flowing or cement-free refractory concretes, attest to the success of this strategy. Continual on-going development is not merely a catchphrase, it is something that EKW lives in all areas of the company.
Furthermore, EKW GmbH also offers system solutions for the functional lining of a wide variety of smelting and heat-treatment furnaces, together with the surrounding peripherals, so that a comprehensive palette of products serves as the foundation for the sustained success of our business. Various forms of full-service concepts complete the EKW portfolio.
The EKW GmbH philosophy is to,
- find economical and efficient solutions
- provide personal and intensive customer support by means of a highly motivated team
- convince our customers through a full engineering spectrum.
The consistent implementation of these company goals is demonstrated by the sustained growth and steadily increasing number of employees. Subsidiaries in Italy, France, Malaysia and Mexico, as well as several shareholdings and partner companies in Germany and Slovenia, together with numerous agencies, make it possible for EKW GmbH to work with our customers with even greater focus, and to do so on a global scale. Collaboratively, we develop and find solutions that guarantee mutual satisfaction and success. We look forward to teaming up with you, too!
