“Choosing Eisenhüttenstadt as a location was a strategic decision for Progroup AG directed at the Eastern European markets. The existing infrastructure, synergy effects due to its links with the ArcelorMittal steelworks, the qualifications of the people and close proximity to science and research institutes were particular factors that spoke for Eisenhüttenstadt.”

Jürgen Heindl, CEO of Progroup AG
