METAL EVOLUTION STRATEGY
VÍTKOVICE MACHINERY GROUP is one of the largest engineering groups in Europe. It builds on almost two centuries of know-how and doing business in an industry which has been accompanying civilisation and driving its development since the beginning. The Group has expanded to almost all fields of human activities and stood at the birth of the third largest city in the Czech Republic. Hence it has been an active participant in evolution – METAL EVOLUTION. Under the VÍTKOVICE Group’s umbrella there is a spectrum of industries newly grouped into three pillars in such a way that their synergies across the Group’s subsidiaries enable us to find a solution for any assignment given to us by our business partners. The METAL EVOLUTION Strategy enables clients to better understand the production base of VÍTKOVICE, which can take pride in its closed production cycle of special metallurgy involving all the available technologies. At the same time, the second pillar is represented by VÍTKOVICE products with top class know-how, which can be delivered not only as commodities, but also with engineering support, including full tailor-made solutions. The strategy newly defines services, which include the already established installation and maintenance as well as technologically new forging of titanium and nickel alloys and other technologies of the third millennium. Our completed acquisitions and investments in third millennium technologies predispose us to the role of an EPC contractor. We are a partner with modern manufacturing facilities of a global reach, but also with responsibility to ourselves as well as to our immediate surroundings.
