Metran, Metrec and Polymers, the three MGG sites in Amstetten and Kematen, opened their doors on September 28 and 29 and provided insights „behind the scenes“. Initiated by the Federation of Lower Austrian Industry and the Industry Division of the Lower Austrian Chamber of Commerce, more than 40 companies across the province invited visitors to the open days. More than 25,000 visitors throughout Lower Austria took the opportunity to get to know one or two companies better.
The Müller-Guttenbrunn Group invited interested people to take a closer look at the world of recycling. At all three sites, there was a first-hand demonstration of how state-of-the-art technology is used to recycle metal and plastic waste in a sustainable and ecologically responsible manner.

A look behind the scenes of recycling
At the sites in Amstetten and Kematen, visitors were able to take a look behind the scenes during plant tours and experience first-hand what high-end recycling and the circular economy mean. MGG employees vividly explained how much know-how is required to recover valuable materials from „waste“ and thus sustainably protect the environment.
It quickly became clear at the start of each tour that recycling is no „walk in the park“: safety instructions and the wearing of a high-visibility vest were mandatory for the participants. In addition to the „live experiences“, the program included film screenings, which once again demonstrated the business areas of the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group and allowed the topics of recycling, sustainability and the circular economy to be experienced as a homogeneous whole.
The guests‘ physical well-being was also catered for. Hunger was satisfied with sausages and pastries as well as coffee and cake. The hunger for more sustainability and circular economy was hopefully awakened by the visit to Müller-Guttenbrunn!
Commitment to green jobs
Opening doors and the associated „granting access“ is also intended to raise public awareness of the industry located in the region. At MGG, there is also the „green jobs“ factor. The company stands for social and ecological responsibility, genuine sustainability and economic efficiency, and does so with complete conviction. When you ask employees why they work at MGG, you often get the answer: „Because it makes sense to work for a company that makes a significant contribution to protecting our environment through recycling!“
The open days were two eventful days for the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group, giving visitors a glimpse into the fascinating world of recycling. Many thanks to those responsible on site and to the visitors at the sites in Amstetten and Kematen!
