The project

The EBW Lex Gmbh is a newly founded company and is engaged in the manufacture of forks by means of an electron beam welding process. The process is patented and protected within the EU, Turkey, USA, Russia, Japan, India and China.

In this way, the properties of high-strength (expensive) steel and cheaper metals can be combined and substantial savings can be achieved in both the use of materials and energy.

The present investment project includes the mechanical equipment for the manufacture of the forks by means of electron beam whitening.
An existing hall in the urban area of St. Pölten is used to house the production facilities.

Implementation of the project will create jobs.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
