Metdra Kloz GmbH Logo

A deft hand with wire since 1963


It has been official since July 1, 2022: with METDRA KLOZ GmbH, the former METDRA GmbH in Leonberg has been integrated into the Kloz Group and taken over with all employees. In this way, the proper continuation of the company is safe and operations are continued.

Cengiz Öztok was appointed as Managing Director.

The Kloz Group based in Fellbach, to which our company, DKF KLOZ GmbH, also belongs, operates dealerships for cars and commercial vehicles. Locations in Fellbach, Stuttgart and Korntal-Münchingen as well as body shops and salvage and towing services. KLOZ also offers trading and services with forklifts.

In addition to the well-known services of DKF KLOZ GmbH, which include wire processing, plastic vacuum deep-drawing, CNC processing, whirl sintering and electrostatic powder coating, all customers now also receive the products and services of METDRA KLOZ GmbH directly.

This contains an excellent complement. Hand in hand with the new sister company, we can offer an even wider range of solutions for your tasks relating to metal, wire and plastics processing.
