The Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, has received an award from the Tyrolean government in recognition of the group’s 100-year anniversary.

Michael Schwarzkopf, chairman of the Plansee Group Supervisory Board, accepted the certificate, which was presented by Sonja Ledl-Rossmann, president of the Tyrolean Parliament, and Christoph Walser, president of the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce.

Governor Günther Platter commented, “As a special recognition of the success story, the company will in future bear the Tyrolean coat of arms, with which the state of Tyrol honours individuals and companies for outstanding services.”

Founded in 1921, the Plansee Group is a world leader in the fields of refractory metals and hardmetals, covering the entire production process from the ore through to customer-specific components. It has over fifty global production locations and over 13,000 employees.

The group also hosts the well respected Plansee Seminar, an international conference on refractory metals and hard materials. Now in its 20th edition, the seminar will take place at the group’s Reutte headquarters on May 30–June 3, 2022.

The presentations at the 20th Plansee Seminar will include topics where products based on refractory metals and hard materials play an important role, or where they are promising alternatives to present material solutions. Applications, materials, processes, digital transformation, and testing methods will be addressed in keynote lectures and contributed papers. Abstract submissions are being accepted until the deadline of October 10, 2021.
