Kopf Group takes over zinc die casting company DruMeta-Metall GmbH & Co. KG located in Velbert/Germany on July 1st, 2016. Willi Kopf, founder and owner of Kopf Group is glad about this acquisition: “DruMeta has been founded 50 years ago and is one of the leading zinc die casting companies in Europe. With the 170 well educated staff and a wide variety of customers the company will fit perfectly into our strategic development.”
Covered by the brand POWER-CAST the group brings traditional foundries together under a single roof. With 8 locations in Germany, the Czech Republic and Mexico they deliver high-precision aluminium, magnesium and zinc die castings. The nearness to the customers plays a very crucial role in this. The company is able to realize all the benefits associated with the application of die cast components for its customers and it does so as a full-service provider, from development partnerships right through to fully assembled componeants. The deep know-how of all three die casting alloys – aluminium, magnesium and zinc – offers a unique customer benefit. Two or three individual POWER-CAST locations are strategically coordinated and specialized in the same types of alloys. Lightweight construction systems made from magnesium and aluminium round off the automotive portfolio.
