Foundries serve all sec­tors of the build­ing industry, i.e. build­ing con­struc­tion, civil engin­eer­ing and res­id­en­tial build­ing. The products most deman­ded by the private res­id­en­tial-build­ing sec­tor are cast­ings for radi­at­ors and boil­ers, cooker and stove cast­ings as well as san­it­ary cast­ings. Pipes and mal­le­able fit­tings account for c. 5% of cast­ing sales.
