new construction FAW-foundry Changchun – capacity 60.000 t automobile cast / year – planned and realized by KW Consulting Group

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the company KW Consulting Group GmbH & Co.KG, the foundry specialized magazine “Giesserei-Praxis” had the occasion of conducting an interview with the CEO of the company, Mr Dr. Hans-Peter Krapohl, about industry and business. For more than 10 years, the KW-Group occupies a successful position within the foundry market and it has achieved to become – at least in Germany – the “Number One” in the entire foundry sector (i.e. in the sectors: aluminium, iron and steel). This pertains all procedures as e.g. sand casting, chill-mould casting, die casting; the entire architecture, the building equipment and appliances and the complete production process starting with the incoming goods, raw material (sand, etc.) until the completed, ready-painted cast part. Meanwhile, the KW-Group offers this process on an international level with 3 locations in Europe – 2 in Germany, 1 in Switzerland – as well as representative offices in China, Russia, South-Africa and the USA. Below a project example of the KW :  new construction FAW-foundry Changchun – capacity 60.000 t automobile cast / year – planned and realized by KW Consulting Group
