By tradition committed to progress

SHW Casting Technologies came into being out of the casting activities of Schwäbische HüttenWerke, thus succesfully continuing a century long tradition. The roots of iron mining goes back to the year 1365 when monks started mining iron ore on the Schwäbische Alb.

The company's sense of tradition is reflected by the company logo which includes the crown of the royal house of Wuerttemberg and the founding year 1365.
