Vulcast S.A.

Steel casting with the highest durability

Vulcast Belgium specializes in the casting of steel parts from 0.2 tons to 20 tons. The product range includes steel products made of single and duplex steel, which have a special structural quality, a high degree of hardness and are thus created for complex end markets. Product applications include dredging vessels, the cement and mining industries, and rail vehicles.

Transaction & Strategy

The former subsidiary of Magotteaux S.A. produced mainly for internal demands. Third-party sales could only be acquired and implemented to a limited extent due to group affiliations and internal guidelines.

The strategic reorientation on the market as an independent foundry was the core task after the takeover. The material competence and quality of the products were transferred to a market presence as a niche player, whereby new customers were acquired worldwide. A far-reaching sales offensive made it possible to increase Vulcast’s annual volume in a very short time and minimize the dependence on the former owner.
