Our plant, called "ROLF PLÖTZ ELEKTROSCHMELZE", was founded by Rolf Plötz in 1972 for
the production of steel-shot and metal granulates.
After years of experience in the production of granulates and further experience
with its own foundry, the development of a new production line began, namely
the production of a welding compound and accessories for the aluminothermic
welding of railroad tracks. This line is called ALUTHERM.
On November 8, 1994, the Federal Office for Railway Systems in accordance with
the German Railway Company (DB AG) granted us permission to produce and employ
our ALUTHERM welding materials.
Today the Rolf Plötz Elektroschmelze GmbH & Co. KG sells its product throughout
Germany as well as worldwide.
We have accepted the continuous challenge of developing higher quality
and optimizing our aluminothermic welding process in order to make it less expensive,
safer and user-friendly.
