Quality casting from the Ore Mountains.
Lößnitz Foundry - Iron foundry from the Ore Mountains
If you are looking for a service provider in the Ore Mountains for grey cast iron or spheroidal iron casting, then we at GL Gießerei Lößnitz GmbH are your partner. From styrofoam models or wooden models for model making to modern CAD/CAM applications, we provide you with the services of a "one-stop" foundry. And as a green foundry, we always keep an eye on the environment in our work.
Sustainability & Environmental Protection
Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity since the end of the Ice Age. There is now global agreement that we urgently need to counteract man-made climate change. We are prepared to take responsibility for the world we leave to our children and grandchildren.
For this reason, we have had the greenhouse gas emissions caused by our company's activities recorded and offset by purchasing a total of 7,000 climate protection certificates for 2021. With these certificates we support a reforestation project in Panama (Gold Standard), a sustainable forestry project in Uruguay (VCS) and a hydropower plant project in Brazil (UNCER standard). These projects support nine of the total 17 SDG's.
Today, every company is morally obliged to take a look at our environment. And at a modern foundry, environmental protection and climate protection should be a matter of course. For us, this means that we have expanded our facilities with a 5 million euros in exhaust air purification. Because we care about the environment and you as our customer can be sure that you are investing in climate-friendly technology when you work with us.
Always up to date with the times....
Our foundry has many years of know-how. We have been investing in new technology ever since 1849, and thanks to optimised work processes, we are able to provide you with state-of-the-art work. This guarantees you the good quality of our services and a very good price/performance ratio. It is no coincidence that our foundry in Saxony works for model making and prototyping for a number of well-known international customers. And we look forward to working for you in the future. Since 1992, extensive investments have been made in moulding lines, sand preparation, the new smelting plant, as well as in a new fettling shop and a new blasting house. In the future, we will continue to ensure that we supply you with modern technology and a healthy awareness of the environment.
