Hyster has supplied Hundhausen with specialist equipment to withstand extreme temperatures for 30 years
Walter Hundhausen is part of Georgsmarienhutte Holding. It has almost 650 employees and an annual turnover of over 120m Euros.
The factory produces high quality ductile cast iron elements for the automotive and commercial vehicle industries, serving clients such as BMW, MAN, Mercedes and SAF. High demand has resulted in the need for investments in new production technology including a new oven with a melting capacity of 35 tonnes per hour.
Hyster has supplied Hundhausen with specialist equipment to withstand extreme temperatures for over 30 years. Parts of the operation are described as the ‘Gates of Hell’, with shards of iron at a temperature of 1,500°C bombarding the trucks at speed
