How our company came into being
On 1 July 1990, in the days of the monetary union, our firm was established as a soletradership really consisting of only one person. Our company headquarters were still situated in Breitenbrunn/Erzgebirge in these days.
We started dealing in motor machines in a scantily equiped barn although we only had a quite small range of products. Soon, we added more and more articles to our range by adapting the assortment to our customers` wishes. In 1993, progress also came to Breitenbrunn. However, the improvement of the infrastructure lead to a number of problems, too. The main street`s total redevelopment made it almost impossible to be successful in doing business – we have almost been separated from the rest of the world.
So, we started looking for a new place and found it in Schwarzenberg near the sports ground across the street at the B 101. There, we established a "sales tent" of 100 m². For more than 2 years we have sold our products there, from April to October. During the winter months we still had to realize our sales as well as all services offered to our clients by us in our Breitenbrunn's outlet.
For the same moment, we were planning new company headquarters in Schwarzenberg (Neuwelt): On 15 May 1995 we finally made it – the opening of our new business building, which has a size of 200 m², could be celebrated.
As all these capacities were not sufficient enough to present all parts of our assortment, in 1998, we built up a “hall for tractors” of a size of 300 m² to reach a more convenient atmosphere for our customers.
In the year 2002/2003 we cultivated warehouses with an area of 500 m². In autumn 2005 we built up the basement for the expansion of the salesroom and the office. It will be ready at the end of 2006 or in the beginning of 2007. 10 employees are working in our company at the moment.
We import goods from Scandinavia, Canada, Dubai, Japan, China, Italy and Czech Republic. We are looking in a positive future. With an annual turnover of 3,5 millions in the year 2006, we belong to the biggest motor-appliances dealer of east germany.
