TRUMPF Express: A question of the bottom line

 

Buying a business with private funding right in the middle of the economic crisis and then investing in buildings, product development and machinery? For Dr. Wolfgang Hohnhaus the time had come.

Broad valleys and gentle hills, quaint villages and picturesque towns with locals deeply attached to the soil and their traditions — this is how visitors see the Bavarian Forest.

However, things are not always so tranquil here. The Kugel sheet metal processing company, located in Viechtach, learned that the hard way. The company, rich in tradition, and specializing in high class stainless steel solutions, has been through some turbulent years since it was founded in 1954.

Twice the company teetered on the brink of collapse. Poor investments rocked the firm and in 2007 the eighty or so employees were saved in the nick of time when Alvo, a specialist in large-scale machine housings, came on board. The next shock came within two years when — right in the middle of the restructuring process — Alvo itself went into liquidation in the wake of the economic crisis: "Our time had come," says Hohnhaus who, together with his
father, acquired a majority share in the company and since then has invested heavily in product development and new machinery.
