Start of self-developed door and window production for public transportation vehicles
Over the years, we have become the supplier to other well-known companies, such as Diego Ltd. The company has produced and continues to produce uniquely developed shelf and rack systems for many stores in Hungary, Slovakia and Romania. The (current) group of owners which established in 2005 decided to start manufacturing self-developed products in 2006 in addition to the service activities. From there, a dynamic pace of development began.
Our first international exhibition
In 2007, the MÁV group also noticed the company and entrusted it with door development. When the door was completed the company was able to participate for the first time in one of the most innovative and popular public transport exhibitions in Europa, Innotrans. From then on, MÁV Plc. became a regular customer of the company and entrusted it with such works as for example the automation of the old, mechanical doors on 110 railway cars. Metal 99 Ltd. was unstoppable on its way to enter the international market. In addition to Innotrans, Metal 99 became a regular participant in the bus and commercial vehicle exhibition in Hanover, as well as in one of Europe's largest bus exhibitions held every two years in Brussels. And the participation paid off.
In the representative office of Hanning&Kahl
One of the biggest recognitions in the company's history can be attributed to 2012, when we were awarded the exclusive distributor and series repair-provider status of a German Company, Hanning & Kahl company in the field of distribution and repair of railway brake and switch equipment. Later, the company began to deal not only with the repair of transmission adjustment equipment, but also with the sale of their environmental devices. Thus, in 2014, it received the repair of the Combino trams' brake systems and the renovation work of the entire Combino fleet in Budapest.
Construction of assembly hall
The increase in the number of orders was directly proportional to the increase of the company’s capacity. The locksmith and appliance assembly factory was supplemented with a chipping and surface treatment plant. Later, however, the advancement of door production to a higher level required a separated assembly factory, so in 2014 the area was supplemented with a 500 square meter hall and in 2015 a 1000 square meter hall. As a result, the company can fulfill the orders of its partners on nearly 4,500 square meters.
Delivery of the warehouse building
By 2020, the company also reached a milestone in terms of expansion, as new, modern cutting machines were acquired for the reorganization and expansion of the plants, and the storage capacity was expanded. The purpose was to increase the efficiency of the work processes and modernize the working conditions.
