PRESS RELEASE IN NE-METALLE MONITOR JOURNAL: DESPITE INTENSIVE PRICE PRESSURE OETINGER IS BACK IN THE BLACK

The Oetinger Group sees light on the horizon again in 2014. The remelter of aluminium scrap had to file for bankruptcy in July 2013, but even before the end of the year a strategic investor was found. In addition to margin pressure and low remelt ingot prices, the then high bank liabilities from the legacy of the Konzelmann acquisition had burdened the company. Roland Keller, Managing Director responsible for Metals Purchasing and Sales at Oetinger, set out the future priorities in conversation with NE-Metalle Monitor.

WEBSITE RELAUNCH HAS CLEAR DIRECTION
OETINGER ALUMINIUM REPOSITIONS ITSELF

Weißenhorn, 08.10.2014 - Companies of the Oetinger Group create new focus. With the mission of "leading alloys for leading products", the professional  supply partner for aluminium casting alloys is emphasising the Oetinger premium quality. The redesigned Oetinger website, www.oetinger.net, has been online since 1 October and highlights the performance capability of Oetinger in terms of product quality, logistics and alloying expertise, while picking up on the emotive language of customer communications.

"With this clear positioning, we want to communicate our strong market position and our profile as a benchmark in the aluminium industry," emphasises Roland Keller, Managing Director for Metals Purchasing and Sales.
The relaunch of the Oetinger website therefore represents an important step in the new external communication. It appears in a fresh and modern design. It informs in a clear and reduced manner about the wide range of products and services of the company as well as the latest corporate news. Clear graphics, such as the aluminium cycle, catchy slogans and short text elements also contribute to the website’s tidy structure.
Other highlights include intuitive navigation and appealing, emotional imagery.

 

Aluminium in Perfektion

The Oetinger mission - "Leading alloys for leading products" - is visualised by the representation of high-quality car parts on the website.
"Oetinger alloys are an important part of many premium vehicles," comments Dr. Volker Heidtmann (Managing Director of Manufacturing and Technology).
The Oetinger premium standard is reflected not only in the products but permeates the entire organisation. A comprehensive environmental and energy commitment are just as an important part of Oetinger as occupational health and safety. "Employee satisfaction and sustainable behaviour are the cornerstones of our success. To ensure leading alloys for leading products, we draw our strength naturally from the quality of raw materials, but also to a particularly degree from the motivation of our employees," remarks Uwe Baur Managing Director of Finance and Administration.

"RAMA DAMA" AT THE WEISSENHORN PLANT

On 20 September 2014 it was that time again at the Weißenhorn plant: During "Rama dama", the day was spent washing, whitewashing and cleaning up. Over 60 employees showed how to make a plant nicer and better by working together.

And in the afternoon, family and friends were able to admire their work during a tour. Then everyone finished off the day with a shared BBQ. The work was worth it - it looks good.

WE WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME OUR NEW EMPLOYEES

On 1 September 2014 we welcomed our new apprentices - Daniel Schwarzer and Lukas Heine in the process technology field and our new electrician Max Welz - at our locations in Weißenhorn and Neu-Ulm. We wish all of them a good start and look forward to building a successful and trusting relationship.

PRESS RELEASES IN THE COMPANY NEWSLETTER: TREASURE OF SILVER LAKE

The ambience is "heavy metal", the material everything on this company site in Weißenhorn revolves around, however, is "light": The Oetinger aluminium smelting works specialises in high quality alloys.

"RAMA DAMA" AT THE NEU-ULM PLANT

To kick off the internal improvement project "STOP... and GO!", the staff in Neu-Ulm cleaned up their plant.

On Saturday, 24 May 2014, 72 employees spent the day cleaning, painting and repairing. Everyone helped: Production, administration, senior management and a delegation from the Weißenhorn plant.

The day was finished off with a shared BBQ. Family and friends were invited to the BBQ as well and also had the opportunity to go on a tour of the facility on this occasion.

The day was a big success for everyone – and the plant looks almost brand new.
