History of SLV Halle

In 1930 the Mitteldeutsche Schweißlehr- und Versuchsanstalt revealed its regional ambitions with the name under which it was founded. Today, the SLV Halle GmbH remains strongly rooted in central Germany, but has also established itself firmly in the wider German welding landscape.

Together with the subsidiaries of the GSI – Gesellschaft für Schweißtechnik International mbH it forms a capable national network with international reach.

The success story of SLV Halle from its founding to the present day is the achievement of many: employees, customers, partners and supporters have all contributed in their way to ensuring that SLV Halle can look back with pride on the past 85 years, whilst also looking to the future with optimism.

Good co-operation with partners and customers has brought measurable success. This is due to expertise and capabilities, but also consistent further evolution.
