75th company anniversary

It started small in the tranquil town of Burgkirchen an der Alz in Upper Bavaria: Our founder provided solutions for private households to keep things running smoothly with his products TOPFBLANK and ABFLUSSKLAR, which he manufactured himself. Today, we do this worldwide with products for surface coating. And by harmonizing entire processes, we help our customers ensure that their production runs as smoothly as possible in the future.
