2006/2007New fields of application gave us constant growth during the last years. Further investments in modern CNC lathe and milling machines as well as engagement of further personnel were necessary and the existing capacity of space was exhausted faster than scheduled. Modification and expansion of existing building in year 2006 / 2007 gave more space for the department production and assembling. In this way optimum production conditions were still available.
2014After seven more years the newly created space is used up yet again. A big new step takes place in year 2014 with the new building and move to our new premises in the Zeppelinstraße 2 in 28844 Weyhe-Dreye.
