One hundred years of Otto Junker

Otto Junker, Simmerath, celebrates its centenary in 2024. It was not until 2023 that the company consistently focused on sustainability and transformation. It is confident about the future. It continues to plan new plants and modernizations in the direction of electrification.

The system provider for metallurgical processes and the refinement of metallic materials is satisfied with the year 2023. New plants and modernizations have been geared towards electrification. Two practical seminars on inductive melting were well attended by over 60 specialists from the aluminum, copper and cast iron industries. The company also referred to strategic alliances and the expansion of its business through Otto Junker Solutions in November 2023. In its anniversary year, Otto Junker intends to focus not only on its core business but also on tapping into new markets in the recycling and energy supply industries. "Our primary goal is to drive technological progress to increase customer benefits in the foundry and semi-finished products industry, but not only in this industry," emphasizes Erik Míček, CEO of Otto Junker GmbH. Non-metal processing industries such as the food, beverage, glass, ceramics, cement, chemical and paper industries are also set to benefit from the use of recycling and electricity storage systems from Otto Junker Solutions. In early fall, Otto Junker is planning several events to celebrate its centenary.
