New location in Biedenkopf-Wallau auf dem Krummacker
At our new location in Biedenkopf-Wallau, we attach great importance to sustainability - starting with the photovoltaic system on the roof of the new building, which produces 84,000 kWh per year.
It also includes a washing facility that keeps both dirt and steam, as well as noise away from the employees and the rest of the premises. For example, it ensures that oil is collected in a separator and does not pollute the environment.
GF Casting Solutions focuses globally on health promotion, safety and sustainability. More information under Sustainability
