In 2002, Wilhelm Modersohn became aware of the SAF2304 (1.4362) material through Avesta in Sweden. In 2003 Modersohn introduced the first Lean Duplex steel for system products in the German market for fastening systems.
As an independent representative of fastening systems from the company Lutz from Wertheim, Wilhelm Modersohn sen. had recognised early on that there was a great demand in the market for fastenings in the area of masonry facades. In March 1970, he and two employees founded the company, which today has over 140 employees.
MODERSOHN supplies special fixings for the renovation of old buildings and monuments (NiroFix distributor) and the MOSO® masonry support system for masonry natural stone facades (M-SYSTEM distributor).
Wherever very thick walls (e.g. in the base area of a castle wall), natural rock or embankments are to be secured against drifting apart or slipping, very deep (sometimes several metres) round holes are drilled into them with special drills.
Non-ferrous metals (NE-metals) are all metal alloys in which iron (Fe) is not the main alloying element. In the metal market, these are usually copper, aluminium, brass or bronze alloys when it comes to sheets, profiles or pipes.
