History

Over 150 years experience

The history of Deutsche Nickel stretches all the way back to 1861. In 1878 the founder of our company Theodor Fleitmann made the pioneering discovery that the addition of Magnesium to the production process meant that Nickel could now be hot-rolled and forged. Even today, this ground-breaking discovery still forms the basis of manufacturing processes throughout the Nickel processing industry.
