Oschatz establishes new subsidiary in Essen

Essen-based plant construction company Oschatz founded a strategic subsidiary Oschatz Filtertechnology. Approx. 20 employees of the Essen-based company Paul Wurth will move to the Westendhof and take place on the first floor of the headquarters in January 2015. Managing directors are Dr.-Ing. Jan-Christopher Schrag and Andreas Albrecht, and Mathias Terpoorten, who was commercial director at Paul Wurth before.

“We generate new know-how on the sector of flue gas cleaning and offgas treatment as well as dedusting solutions. Herewith, we increase our chain of economic value on the steel market respectively the non-ferrous sector, but also for waste to energy and biomass power plantsâ€?, stated Oschatz managing directors, Dr.-Ing. Jan-Christopher Schrag and Andreas Albrecht.

Oschatz Filtertechnology is the fourteenth subsidiary, which will work independently and generate orders autonomously. The in-house filter department was a brainchild of Dr.-Ing. Hans-Jürgen Schrag, executive chairman of Oschatz. Corporately with Oschatz Filtertechnology the Essen-based plant construction company can offer even more performance and services from single source in the future. In addition to the manufacturing of grate and the production of converter waste gas cooling systems, Oschatz now can also clean the cooled gas stand-alone. This taking over was an important step for staying competitive furthermore.
