About us - Mecklenburger Metallguss

150 years of experience and innovation in casting technology and propeller manufacturing

Year after year hundreds of ship propellers of all sizes are leaving the MMG works, are delivered to their customers all over the world and drive ships around the globe, among them the largest and fastest of their classes.

We are setting the standards

We love challenges. Again and again during the past years MMG has pushed the boundaries and set new standards in ship propeller design.

Constantly MMG conducts research in view of a new generation of propulsion systems and the improvement of design methods. Next to the development of conventional propellers our engineers dedicate themselves to completely new propulsion systems.

Top performance by tradition

With a long tradition of foundries at the current company’s location in Waren (Müritz) we as Mecklenburger Metallguss GmbH can look back on 150 years of experience as a foundry.

The production of special castings made from copper alloy in particular the manufacturing of large ship propellers characterise our company for more than 70 years.

Still today we take up that tradition and strengthen our market position by continuous improvement and innovative engineering.
