The wire works

The EL FOULADH wire mill began production in 1971 with a capacity of 12,000 tonnes / year of wire products. Since its creation, the adopted strategy is to invest in the know-how, the development of new products and the acquisition of the machines of new generations. Currently its capacity exceeds 30,000 tons / year.
