About us


For 70 years, Karl Mertl has been a reliable partner, delivering tubes to thousands of customers. We continuously update our product range and services to the many diverse customer requirements. As we have cooperated with renowned suppliers for many years, we are also in a position to fulfill any particular customer requests. As a family enterprise we attach particular significance to employee satisfaction. We also regard the community that we live in as our partner, and for many years we have been a sponsor of the St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute in Vienna, for example.

Storage facilities

We stock 10,000 tons of tubes and round steels in more than 5,000 dimensions and qualities on 90,000 m², which are available on 30,000 m² of building ground surfaces. Our new storage building has extended our indoor storage capacity by an additional 3,200 m² and gives us access to a second computercontrolled high-bay storage system in cassette design. The building has been equipped with new automatic sawing machines and a fully automatic packaging line. A photovoltaic system covering a surface of 860 m² has been fitted to the roof of the building, which is our contribution to environmental protection.


In all departments a well-established team of seasoned and young staff members applies its expertise and commitment to our customer services. This helps us to offer target-oriented information and advice, as well as swift and competent order processing. We cut your tubes to any desired length – also when serial or combination cutting is requested. Our website contains detailed information for purchasers and engineers – for example, ordered certificates can be downloaded on request. Of course, we have also obtained certification  according to EN ISO 9001 for our quality management system.
