Working across companies at Metzner



That's possible with Metzner. A holding company that has several subsidiaries. What is behind it? Which companies are involved and why? It's all about cables. There is an entire value chain behind it. Successful work through cooperation and interaction that offers added value to the customer. This is the approach taken by Metzner Holding.


Individual machines can also be expanded into an entire, automated production line. Standardised machines are important - no question about it! However, in such a fast-moving industry as we experience today, we must be able to implement our customers' special wishes with regard to machines or production lines quickly and efficiently. In doing so, we count on our long-standing partnerships and concentrated know-how.

Metzner Holding has a total of around 150 employees and is based in Neu-Ulm. The individual subsidiaries are controlled from here under the management of Gerhard Rauch. In a series of articles we will go into more detail about the role of each individual company. The following diagram provides an introduction to the history of Metzner.
