EHRET GmbH in Mahlberg invests in new building and technology

15.08.2018 — Press releases

As Europe’s number-one for aluminium window shutters, EHRET GmbH is expanding its production capacity at its Mahlberg site. The successful company is extending its manufacturing building at its existing site by 4000 m2 and investing in a new, state-of-the-art powder-coating system. The groundbreaking ceremony for the planned new building took place on 09/08/2018. Both the new building and the new powder-coating system are set to be put into operation in the second quarter of 2019.

Until the new system can be put into operation, a number of alternative solutions are being implemented to ensure ongoing operations are not disturbed: “What we’re looking for at the moment is some flexibility, but we know we have a future brimming with new possibilities and technologies to look forward to,” explains Eberhard Schopferer, Managing Director of EHRET GmbH. “The investment in the new building and the increase in our capacity that the new powder-coating system is set to bring are landmark decisions for the future of our company.”
By making these changes, EHRET has laid the foundations for being able to respond quickly and flexibly to customer requests in the future, and for continuing to expand its outstanding market position both within Germany and throughout Europe (export share > 50%).

As if this weren’t enough, EHRET GmbH is also celebrating yet another exciting occasion this year: 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the company, with the shutter specialist commemorating the event under the motto “Evolution – 50 years of EHRET”. The highlight of this landmark anniversary year is the open day at the Mahlberg site on 22 September 2018, to which everyone is warmly invited. The event will include a tour of the site and a peek behind the scenes of the company along with a whole host of other attractions for all ages.
