High-quality industrial-use welding filler metals for maintenance, repair, and overlay welding. By adding the UTP and Soudokay brands to the voestalpine Böhler Welding brand network, the UTP Maintenance can look back on a proud history spanning 60 years as an innovative supplier of welding technology products. It is the global leader in the repair, maintenance, and overlay welding segment.
With roots both in Bad Krozingen (Germany) and Seneffe (Belgium), UTP Maintenance offers the world’s most unique product portfolio for filler metals from its own production facilities. The Soudokay brand was established back in 1938, while the UTP brand began operations in 1953. Each of these brands therefore respectively look back on a long history of international dimension.
By merging into the UTP Maintenance brand, the collective know-how of both brands—gathered over decades in the fields of metallurgy, service, and applications engineering—is now united under one umbrella. As a result, a truly unique portfolio of solutions for welding applications has been created in the fields of repair, maintenance, and overlay welding.
Industry experience and applications know-how—combined with innovative and custom (tailor-made) products—guarantee that our customers obtain the ideal combination of productivity and protection, within the shortest operating times and up to the maximum performance capacity of their products. This explains UTP Maintenance’s guiding principle—“tailor-made protectivity” —which puts the focus on the customer.
