Then & Now

In 1980, CRONIMET was founded in Karlsruhe by Günter Pilarsky. Over the years, it has developed into one of the leading raw material recyclers for stainless steel and specialty metals. The early years were marked by the foundation of the first European companies. This laid the foundation for today’s worldwide network of the CRONIMET Group.

See for yourself how CRONIMET has developed over the last 38 years!
