Year-end report: Customers trust K industries
Founded in summer of 2016, K industries GmbH took over 68 orders from the predecessor company, KRESTA. Some of these were already finished and delivered, the rest are still being processed. K industries has been able to establish itself in the market in spite of a difficult initial situation. Over the last few months it has been possible to acquire over thirty new orders.
“Customers trust the quality and timeliness of K industries. That is also an encouraging sign for the coming year of 2017”, say management representatives. The foundation for this positive development is undoubtedly the 140 employees with their top qualifications augmented by about 50 temporary workers. Some of these are out conducting field assembly domestically and abroad while the production facilities are located in St. Andrä in the Lavanttal region.
A few days ago, six huge steel containers were shipped to an oil company for the storage of engine oil having been sent on their way to Hamburg by means of heavy transporter. Each container weighs 17 tonnes, is 12.4 metres long and has a diameter of 4.3 metres (see photo). K industries is one of only five or six suppliers in all of Austria able to manufacture pressure vessels of this type – this particular case required a special approval from the German Institute for Structural Engineering (DIBt).
