KCS Herr Voss UK Ltd has a long history of supplying quality equipment for the processing of flat rolled metals dating back to 1962. In its 50 year history the company has successfully executed over 300 major projects for carbon, stainless & electrical steels, aluminium, zinc & other non-ferrous alloy processing.
A significant number of these projects are for the upgrading of existing production lines by increasing output capacity, production efficiency, improving yield or incorporating new processes to enhance product quality.
The first projects in the 1960’s focused the stainless steel industry and much of this equipment is still in operation today. While the stainless steel sector continues to be an important part of the company’s business, more recently, projects for carbon & electrical steels and aluminium projects have been executed.
Throughout their history, KCS Herr Voss UK have supplied a wide range of specialist equipment & services to the metals industries, including the UK’s largest coil coating line and one of the world’s fastest aluminium can stock cleaning lines.
In recent years, numerous feasibility studies for major metal producers have been provided, many of which have played a role in important strategic decisions.
