Lime is one of Wietersdorfer’s five Business Segments
This segment comprises:
• w&p Kalk GmbH, headquartered in Klagenfurt with a plant in Peggau
• INTERCAL d.o.o. in Sirac and Ličko Lešće/Croatia and
• IGM Zagorje d.o.o. in Zagorje/Slovenia
From 1893 limestone has been excavated in Peggau a few years subsequently calcined there in shaft kilns and has been ever since. The plant was acquired in 1949, however, the initial focus was on cement production. Lime production was discontinued in 1956 and the shaft kilns were decommissioned. Wietersdorfer did not resume lime production until the takeover of Steirische Montan GmbH in 1993. The Lime business grew in importance with the compa-ny’s participation in the Slovenian Salonit Group; the Kamen Sirac plants – the present-day Intercal (Croatia) and IGM Zagorje (Slovenia) plants – were added to the Group. The restruc-turing of Wietersdorfer’s activities into five business segments has made Lime an independent business that is rapidly assuming greater significance. Finally, a new but by no means final chapter in the history of lime is being written with the commissioning of the state-of-the-art Maerz PFR kiln in Peggau.
