1959

The Company Moves to Today’s Headquarters in Erzgiessereistrasse

The young company grew by leaps and bounds, and soon its first base in Linprunstrasse in Munich, with administration and production under one roof, was bursting at the seams. A search began for a suitable plot of land, applying the time-honored motto of “we’ll only buy what we can afford, and our money also has to be enough to build there.”

The young company grew by leaps and bounds, and soon its first base in Linprunstrasse in Munich, with administration and production under one roof, was bursting at the seams. A search began for a suitable plot of land, applying the time-honored motto of “we’ll only buy what we can afford, and our money also has to be enough to build there.”

A site at Erzgiessereistrasse 33, finally, met all of their criteria, with an added benefit: it contained a couple of shacks that had previously been used to store beer but could be quickly converted into a “new” machine shop.

The company moved there in December 1959 and began operating with a makeshift power supply and a single water tap. The old rooms in Linprunstrasse were retained for a while, since they were needed for production. Georg Spinner and his wife Erika spent the next two years living and working in the middle of a construction project that provided 6000 m² of production and office space, initially enough to meet requirements while taking advantage of every last square inch of the property.

Production and parts of administration were later gradually shifted to a new site that was acquired in Westerham (about 50 km south of Munich) in 1966, but Erzgiessereistrasse 33 is still the company’s headquarters today.
