  • Section: C - Manufacturing
  • Division: 25 - Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment

  • 259 - Manufacture of other fabricated metal products; metalworking service activities

Explanatory note

This division includes the manufacture of "pure" metal products (such as parts, containers and structures), usually with a static, immovable function, as opposed to the following divisions 26-30, which cover the manufacture of combinations or assemblies of such metal products (sometimes with other materials) into more complex units that, unless they are purely electrical, electronic or optical, work with moving parts.
The manufacture of weapons and ammunition is also included in this division.

This division excludes specialized repair and maintenance activities (see group 331) and the specialized installation of manufactured goods produced in this division in buildings, such as central heating boilers (see 4322).
