The professional journal metallbau is addressed to decision-makers in structural metal engineering in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Target groups are both professional trade and industrially oriented aluminium and steel engineering contractors. The articles cater to the interests of the managing directors and deal with issues in the working environment of responsible technicians/engineers in design, fabrication and on the construction site.

Our readers are primarily concerned with windows, doors, facades, gates, conservatories, stairways, fences, railings and, in the meantime, also with the production of components for industry.
The editors provide information on the sector, technical innovations, completed projects and modern company management. We regularly report on career paths in structural metal engineering – both trade professional and academic careers. Profiles presenting the portfolio of the contractors, technical reports on standards, the application of machines and software keep you up to date and provide concrete recommendations for the field. With reader tests, market surveys and brief reports on new products, we ensure that you maintain an overview of suppliers and service contractors and make the right choice for your investments.
Most of the information is researched by our editors, other reports are written by specialist authors from training and testing institutes as well as from the supplier sector. Experts report on damage incidents and give tips on avoiding errors.
