process of market expansion, this Wiest unit supplies steel pipes that add technology and quality to the
products of clients in many segments such as the auto industry and the agricultural machines, building,
furniture manufacturing, bicycles, home appliances, electronics and others.
The perspectives for the future of the automotive market led the company to acquire, in 1998, the
shareholding control of Intraferro, nowadays named Wiest Tubos e Componentes, manufacturer of precision
pipes and automotive components.
