METALPOL FOR RAILWAYS — the origins of METALPOL WĘGIERSKA GÓRKA Sp. z o.o. date back to 1838 when Count Adam Wielopolski set up iron works in Węgierska Górka, which gave rise to the present Foundry. For many years, we have supplied cast iron items for the needs of the railway industry both in Poland and abroad.
Our products are mostly made of spheroidal graphite iron EN GJS 500-7 according to quality requirements and standards typical of the railway market. Accommodating the needs of the market segment, our company implements new technologies, develops and improves products, at the same time increasing its production capacity.
One of our major products manufactured on a mass scale for the needs of the railway market is a rail-fixing anchor for use with pre-tensioned pre-stressed concrete sleepers. METALPOL is the largest manufacturer of such anchors in Poland. We also produce cast iron crossover plates of various type and components used in rail vehicles: wagons, locomotives etc.
Most manufacturers of pre-tensioned and pre-stressed concrete sleepers from Poland are our customers. We also sell to buyers from the UK, Czech Republic, France, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
