Price Development:
We anticipate that prices will rise in the second half of 2024 for the following reasons:
- Nickel prices are in a stable upward trend.
- The current situation in the Red Sea is leading to higher sea freight rates and significantly longer delivery times from Asia to Europe.
- Prices for stainless steel scrap are increasing.
- Once further interest rate cuts by the ECB occur, the European economy will rebound.

New Projects / Products:
Stainless steel ball valves are an excellent choice for drinking water installations. We can supply you with two-piece stainless steel ball valves from our stock in Germany, which are explicitly approved by the DVGW for drinking water. Stainless steel ball valves are easy to operate. With a quarter turn of the handle, the water flow can be fully opened or closed, making them very user-friendly.

We maintain an exceptionally extensive inventory of stainless steel fittings, including options with internal threads on both sides, internal and external threads, welded or flanged connections, as well as press-fit ends.

The Team:
Today, we are pleased to introduce Rodrigo Gonzalez Poceiro. Rodrigo is a true asset and reinforcement to our sales team. Originally from Argentina, he spent 10 years in the insurance industry there before emigrating to Germany. Here, he met our Sales Manager, David del Moral, while playing soccer (where else?), and David quickly sparked his enthusiasm for joining our sales team. Now, Rodrigo successfully manages our customers in Latin America. He sees his role as overcoming boundaries and generating profitable growth with our customers, all with a touch of South American passion.
On the personal side, things are going great as well. A few years ago, he got married, and then his twins, Amanda and Astor, were born. The blend between his professional and personal life is seamless, and he enjoys it that way.
