New production plant for tire reinforcement, bead wire and steel cords
Žatec, Czech Republic

Kiswire is engaged in the production of steel wires and ropes for various use, such as springs, tire reinforcement, wires for high voltage distribution, crage and bridge ropes. The new plant, which is Kiwwire’s first bead wire plant of this kind in Europe, will create more than 500 jobs in Czech Republic. The entire project is carried out by Bilfinger Tebodin, based on an EPCm contract: from concept study through building permit, tender documentation up to construction management and test operation. Bilfinger Tebodin managed to integrate the construction management team already in the phase of the construction supplier selection. Main reason for Kiswire to hire Bilfinger Tebodin was Bilfinger Tebodin’s technological expertise, permitting services, and coordination of the design and construction management part of the project.
