Our headquarters.

In 1921, Dr. Paul Schwarzkopf founded Metallwerke Plansee in the Tyrolean town of Reutte where a workforce of 20 employees started to produce molybdenum and tungsten wire for the lighting industry: this venture was to mark the start of a now 90-year-old success story. Since 1921, both the variety of products and the number of employees have grown significantly. The Reutte site is now the Plansee Group's head office. A large proportion of the production activities as well as all the central services are located here.

More than 1 000 employees work on tailor-made products for our customers, manufacturing, for example, interconnects for environmentally friendly fuel cell technology, sputtering targets for the production of solar cells or high temperature-resistant components for the fabrication of energy-efficient LEDs. Many developments pioneered here in the Tyrol have gone on to become a global success.

We place great emphasis on research and development. At its headquarters, Plansee employs some 150 materials scientists and developers who develop new materials solutions for our customers..
