The workshop: keep the good and design something mew

We ahve had our own workshop for 35 years?

It has state-ot-the-art equipment and has been transferred into a new building in 2002.
In this workshop, machines are constantly tested and/or completely overhauled.

Never a machine leaves our house without having been tested.

We do sheet metal treatment, chip removal and welding work (by qualified welders) ourselves.
Our modern sandblasting cabin and our painting booth are in accordance with the environmental standards.
Furthermore, we implement all related control systems.

Our employees: a strong TEAM

Our motivated and competent employees are the most important in our company.
Their great competence and considerable know-how are mostly based on a long-standing activity in our house.

They make it possible to deliver customer-specific solutions.

Dismantling, assembling and transferring machines:

"Nothing is impossible" has always been our motto!

We have our own and modern equipment: crane trucks, several forklifts,...

Thanks to our long-standing experience, we can master even the most difficult tasks.
