A multi-faceted international Group
The KHW Group was founded in 1964. The city is situated in the immediate vicinity of Duesseldorf and thus in the heart of the international service industry of Nordrhein-Westfalen. The Group is nowadays comprised of four independent companies operating in a variety of fields. Consulting in the engineering and construction of industrial plant, application-related advice, innovative solutions designed to develop businesses are all part of the services provided by the KHW Group. After the successful and rapid industrialization in the early years, the KHW Group extended its operating field and followed the steel industry in Europe, North America and China providing customer service as advisors with investments of new industrial plants for steel production and processing.
In addition, KHW has many years of experience in transferring shut down industrial plants. From plants no longer in production in Germany the KHW Group sold and delivered in 1998 a blast furnace to China, and in 2002/2003 a 5-stand tandem cold-rolling mill, a skin-pass mill and a pickling line to Malaysia. In a consortium with Thyssen Rheinstahl Technik (TRT) the KHW Group was involved in the delivery of a strip steel mill to a Chinese customer.
At the turn of the century, the KHW Group has moved its new headquarters into its own building in Meerbusch-Büderich.
