The determined and hard work has yielded its fruit quite soon: the enterprise marked with his name had a 43% market share of Hungarian reinforcing steel production back in the second half of the 1990s. At the same time he was also a well-known subcontractor and supplier of the Metallurgical Works of Ózd and those in Diósgyőr.


Establishment:

In order to implement further large-scale projects an efficient, proper ‘hinterland’ had to be established. Thus the foundation of the company was the following step to be taken. Highly qualified, assiduous and loyal professionals have found each other. The vast majority of them are still “engines” of the WIS machinery.

Our partners can now rely on our experiences gathered during our own projects, and we are ready to act as main contractor or general client for our partners in addition to implementing our own developments. In 2014 we successfully completed the reconstruction of the tram track system in Miskolc (Green Arrow), and we participate in the reconstruction works of tram lines No. 1 and No. 3 in Budapest, as well as in the renovation of Széll Kálmán Square. In addition to the works associated with the reconstruction of tram tracks we operate quarries in Beled and Bősárkány, from where 2.5 million tons of gravel were extracted during 2014, part of which was used for the construction of Motorway M86.
