Quality & environment

Quality and environmental protection are core values of the AGRO group. We are convinced that they are not simply „nice to have“, but essential to our collective success – now and in the future.

Quality management, modern machinery and excellent raw material offer the best foundations for high quality products. Clean cast production, permanent quality control and traceability up to and including the raw material are further factors of success. For example, every cast of wire is controlled by our qualified employees. Diameter and tensile strength but also torsion and surface quality are scrutinised by our experts.

We have taken a range of actions from the outset to produce environmentally friendly products and to operate in a sustainable way. This is evident throughout the production process, in logistics and in our constant drive to improve waste management.

In this way we deliver our vision of ‘sustainably good wire’ – playing our part in saving valuable resources for future generations whilst producing the highest quality products.
