History

Zell Parts - a rising Company

The company´s history began in 1949 when Dr. Rudolf Klepsch Sen. – an exiled Sudeten German from Aussig, Czechoslovakia – ventured from his home country to Zell am See and leased the Brandstätter bronze foundry in order to start a new life. At that time, the production of bronze semi-finished products represented the main business of the ZELL-Metall company.

When Dr. Rudolf Klepsch traveled to the Netherlands in 1951, he became aware of the new material polyamide and immediately recognized that this would be competition to bronze and other non-ferrous metals. In 1955 ZELL-Metall became the second company in Europe to start up extrusion and injection molding of polyamide. Five years later the company moved to it´s current location in Kaprun. Since then the product range has continuously increased, for example with POM in 1964, PET ten years later and PEEK in 2001. Several pioneering innovations, such as the first functioning oil filled cast polyamide (1974) or the first nano-particle filled POM and polyamide semi-finished products stem from the Zell-Metall company.

The original core business, the production of bronze semi-finished materials became over the course of time ever less important and was finally ended in 1986.
