Short summary of 2022


2022 is coming to an end and team Westmetall would like to wish our customers, suppliers and other partners a good continuation and a Happy New Year. 

For Westmetall, the past year has meant strong growth, investments in warehouse space, personnel and production.

After Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February, the Aluminium raw material price peaked and has since fallen back to levels we had at the beginning of the year. www.westmetal.se/lme--valutautveckling

With hope for a succesful 2023 for all our friends.

The company's investment for the future

The metal stock holder Westmetall has invested in two new Schelling plate saws. The company has also inaugurated the new production facility for cutting and sawing plates, bars and profiles in the new premises.

The expansion is in close proximity to the main warehouse, which made it easier for the company logistically. The decision to invest in machinery was made quickly, as plate processing has previously been a bottleneck. Now the capacity has more than doubled and the newly added saws have made it possible to handle thicknesses up to 160 mm from the company's own stock.

Together with the previous investment of the market's fastest rod cutter, the company is now able to handle dimensions up to a diameter of 545mm. More machines and additional warehouse space are now planned, as the ambition is to increase the presence on the Nordic market and continue to take shares of old and new products.
