Behind the Name

An element

Tungsten, also known as Wolfram, is a chemical element with symbol W and atomic number 74. It was first discovered as a metal in 1783. It is remarkable for its robustness and of all metals in pure form, tungsten has the highest melting point and tensile strength. Tungsten’s hardness and high density give it valuable military applications. If made very pure, tungsten retains its hardness however also becomes malleable enough so that it can be worked with easily. Alloying just small amounts of tungsten with steel greatly increases its toughness.

A business

From the above description, the business name Tungsten Structures was born. Our logo depicts the chemical symbol W. Our business cards and letterheads carry the atomic number 74, standard atomic weight of 183.84, and electron configuration per shell of 2, 8, 18, 32, 12, 2. Calculatingly, when the symbol W is written with certain brush strokes such as our logo, our Managing Director’s initials VW become apparent. The metal was also discovered exactly 200 years before Vince’s birth year.

The description of Tungsten’s physical properties extend to some of the values that echo through our business;

Tungsten The Metal

  • Remarkable robustness

  • Highest melting point

  • Highest tensile strength

  • Valuable applications

  • Worked with easily

Tungsten The Company

  • Resilient, solid, stable

  • Reliable, even under pressure

  • Exceptionally strong and enduring

  • Value adding

  • Hassle free
