KASTO Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG was originally founded in 1844 and is one of the oldest family-owned companies in Germany or Europe. Still managed by the family member Mr. Armin Stolzer, KASTO has developed into a recognized world market leader for metal saws, semi-automatic and automatic bar and sheet metal storage and retrieval systems as well as automatic handling units for metal bars, sheet metal and cut-pieces. KASTO’s position as global market leader – in technology and numbers – with metal saws and automatic storage systems is based on more than 140 patents and is impressively documented with over 135,000 saws and 1,600 installed automatic storage systems all over the world.
KASTO’s strengths: The employees and their qualification.
Sawing and storing of metal products
KASTO is the only manufacturerer of metal cutting saws offering customers all three sawing methods (hack, band and circular saws) and has a wide product range in each segment. The program starts with small manual machines typically found in job shops and goes up to high-performance bandsaws to cut large blocks and plates. Moreover, KASTO is the only company that develops and realizes a wide range of semi- and fully automatic bar and sheet metal storage systems. The product range encompasses storage towers in compact stand-alone design up to fully automatic Honeycomb storage systems with thousands of storage cassettes for bar stock, sheet metal and to be restored remnants.
Highlighting the synergy of both business fields are fully automatic sawing centers, which automate all storage, handling, sawing, marking, palletizing and bundling processes including material identification starting with the storage of the raw materials up to commissioning of the order-related cut-pieces. Machine shop, industry and metal distribution customers receive the complete equipment for storing, production and distribution from one-source.
KASTO does not “only” deliver saws and storage system: KASTO offers more….
Perfect sawing and storage – this is no longer enough for KASTO. The company counts on added values as unique selling points, which will provide customers and employees with hard cash. Behind “more in profile”, you will find, for example, company values such as customer success orientation, reliability and progress and behind “more in responsibility” you will find the toughness and the durability of the products, customer relationships and company decisions. KASTO does not only have the benefits of an owner-managed company but also backs this up with the philosophy “to keep the business in Germany”, “quality made in Germany” and a long-term business growth.
Leader in technology and design
The core competences of KASTO are technology and product development marked by high creativity as well as solid machine building and a qualified project management. With this concept in mind, KASTO established a worldwide sales and service network and works closely with long-time highly experienced representatives in Germany and abroad.
