The company’s main headquarters are located in Raaba, near Graz, Austria, where EVG employs over 600 people in various different divisions. By producing the critical components for our machines and lines ourselves, we guarantee a high level of precision and reliability, as well as flexibility in providing our customers with spare parts.

Our sister companies, AVI, BSTG and H+S, which produce various reinforcement and mesh products for the central European market using EVG machines, are also located at the same site. As a result, we can directly and continuously build on the experience we have gained in practical operation when designing, developing and engineering our machines and lines – a unique business structure in our industry sector.

Our location in Thalheim, near Linz, employs 30 staff who are primarily involved in the development of machinery for automated reinforcing of precast concrete elements.

Our branches in New York, USA (EVG Inc.) and Moscow, Russia (EVG OOO), in addition to numerous representative offices throughout the world, ensure we remain close to our customers.

Research and Development​

EVG employs more than 100 highly qualified engineers who help to make our production lines and machines the best in the industry. An important focus of our activities lies on the development of customized solutions which are tailored to individual customer requirements. To keep our product range up to date, we integrate all the knowledge and experience that we gain through the operation of our lines on an ongoing basis in a process of continuous improvement.

In addition to our many years of experience, EVG can draw on the pooled knowhow of all the companies within our group. New methods and technologies are developed in close cooperation with the production engineering experts and metallurgists at our affiliated companies. New machine concepts are tested at AVI and BSTG in full production.

The unique composition of our group of companies always ensures state-of-the-art competence from which our customers benefit.


We offer a full range of machinery which meets all requirements in terms of up-to-date processing of reinforcing steel and production of industrial mesh. This makes us ideally suited to provide assistance for our customers in setting up new production plants and in expanding or reorganizing existing ones, not only as a supplier but also as a consultant.

We design optimized production plants based on the specifications for the anticipated production. Our engineering services cover the computation of production capacities, planning of logistics and material flow, and the designing of peripheral equipment as well as the planning work for complete plants.

The automation of processes and the creation of flexibility in production are at the forefront of our considerations in order to enable our customers to react quickly to the often changing demands of the market. This approach enables us to translate the high performance of our equipment into maximum output.
