Primetals Technologies was founded on January 7, 2015, as a joint venture of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Siemens. Our company’s solutions are based on decades of innovation in the field of metals production. Both of our predecessor enterprises, Siemens VAI and Mitsubishi-Hitachi Metals Machinery, have contributed greatly to the comprehensive, state-of-the-art portfolio that Primetals Technologies has at its disposal.
The R&D efforts that Primetals Technologies makes today are a direct continuation of the company’s technological legacy. While our engineers are constantly working to refine our many proven solutions, we are simultaneously pioneering new production methods to facilitate persistent progress within the metals industry. Focus areas include ecological solutions, advanced automation as summed up by the term “Industry 4.0”, future-oriented designs for linked casting and rolling, as well as advanced process analysis and optimization.
The close collaboration with our customers is a major factor that drives us to achieve results unparalleled in the industry. We pay close attention to our customers’ requirements, determine the technological packages best fit to support their targets, and accompany them from the initial pre-planning phase of a project to the final training of their staff, to ensure the best-possible return of investment. As technology pioneers at heart, we are ready to inspire our customers to set the right course for continued success in the metals industry.
