As Ozbros Engineering, we represent Magmaweld Internation exclusively which is a leading welding consumable and machinery manufacturer based in Turkey.
Magmaweld is a leading global brand in the welding industry, owned by Zaimoglu Holding. ‘Oerlikon Kaynak Elektrodlarý ve Sanayi A.S., the oldest company of the group, was established in 1957. The company produced the first ever welding electrode in Turkey in 1959 under license from Oerlikon-Buehrle AG. The product portfolio was expanded to include MIG/MAG & TIGwires, Flux Cored Wires, Submerged Arc Wires and Fluxes to fulfil the ever-increasing need of welding products in Turkey. The group has also been manufacturing Welding Machines since 1971 and Robotic Automation Systems in partnership with Panasonic since 2002.
In the year 2000, to reduce costs, to consolidate its leading position in Turkey and to turn Magmaweld into a global brand; the production facilities, R&D centres and warehouses were moved to new, state of the art facilities in Manisa, situated in the West of Turkey. Until this year, OERLIKON and HALKALI were the major brands of the group. To establish itself as a strong global player in the field, the MAGMAWELD brand was created. The similarity between the molten core of the earth, the magma and the weld pool signifies the source of its name and the brand is registered as a trademark across the globe.
Magmaweld greatly values technical education and has been contributing to the training and education of thousands of welders through regular, free of charge courses since 1961. This service helps increase consumer awareness and technical competence throughout the industry.
