STEINERT Elektromagnetbau GmbH has been at home in Cologne since the late 19th century. With its innovative products for the sorting of raw materials and electromagnetic applications, the company has enjoyed excellent success in the global marketplace from the very beginning. Today we are one of the world’s leading companies in terms of both technology and sales.
In late 2009 the shareholders decided to solidify and enhance this position by making a substantial investment in a new production building and new facilities to expand the production capacity at the company’s Widdersdorferstrasse site in the Braunsfeld district of Cologne. This measure will increase production space from 5,000 to 7,500 m².
The production building and the new plant equipment installed therein will expand our existing production capacity for electromagnetic systems. STEINERT builds classic electromagnets, mostly for the sorting of raw materials, but other sorting technologies are also in use today. That, too, is a world-wide unique selling point. Our electromagnetic systems are also used for applications in other sectors, such as drive technology.
The investment has a total value of nearly €7 million. The initial aim for the project is to secure existing jobs, and we are planning to add six new jobs this year in association with the construction of the new building. A further increase in the number of employees can be expected in the medium term, however. As of 1st January 2010, STEINERT employed 126 persons in Cologne. Added to this are roughly 25 in Australia, three in Japan, two in Brazil and ten in the USA at the respective subsidiaries. Twenty people work at our newest subsidiary, RTT STEINERT GmbH in Zittau, Germany.
