KAUTZ Technologies

The KAUTZ Vorrichtungsbau, today KAUTZ Technologies, was founded in 1980 by Walter Kautz. Since the first days, the production of plant parts and components for the steel mill technology was an important pillar of the company. Close to our location there is a steel producer (BSW) as well as a plant manufacturer for the steel industry (Fuchs Systemtechnik). Through these decades of cooperation with our partners and customers, we have achieved a high level of know-how that meets the requirements under the toughest conditions. Today, we are not only able to manufacture parts, but also to generate appropriate developments and optimizations together with our customers. This extensive know-how also flowed into the development and production of the second product line, the manufacture of cylinders for the steel industry, as well as plant and vehicle construction.


The KAUTZ Technologies is able to react fast and efficiently to customer wishes and requirements. With 70 employees from the planning, construction and manufacturing up to the service on site, everything is realised from one source and from one location.
