Ironworks Meiderich

The ironworks, founded by August Thyssen on 17.03.1902 as a "limited company for metallurgical plant", started production in 1903 with three blast furnaces. By 1908, all five blast furnaces were put into operation. Until decommissioning in 1985 mainly pig iron was produced, which was also delivered to the affiliated foundry.
