The team of EM Gerätebau
Only our team makes the company complete.
Currently, our team consists of about 150 employees.
We are proud of our low employee fluctuation. It is not uncommon for us to have employees who have been with us for 15 years or more – we have already celebrated several 25th and 30th anniversaries.
We do a lot to ensure that our employees feel comfortable with us, because this is the only way they can realize their full potential. Each individual knows that he or she is important and uses his or her skills and qualifications as part of a whole with great commitment to our customers. Together we have grown with all the challenges of the past years and decades. We are proud of our experienced and loyal team. Each individual is an expert in his or her field.
Each of our employees makes a decisive contribution to the success of the company!
As a value-oriented, medium-sized company, it is important to us to create a modern and successful environment for our employees.
It is our goal to promote all employees according to their tasks through well-founded training and further education, personal responsibility and delegation.
Our dealings with each other are characterized by mutual trust, active and forward-looking cooperation, and open and honest communication.
The future drives us.
Our communication is clear, open, and honest, and our dealings with customers and employees are characterized by mutual respect. Our customers need to know where they stand and what we can do for them.
We stand by our word, without exception.
We also listen carefully: to our customers to deliver optimal results, and to our employees with their concerns, suggestions, and ideas.
We assume responsibility in the society in which we live. Among other things, for securing the now more than 150 jobs and, with the continuous staffing of our apprentice workshop, for training young people to become accomplished specialists.
We stand by Germany as a business location.
Environmentally friendly production conditions
We want to make our contribution to environmental protection, which is why, for example, we use only environmentally friendly lubricants, heat our rooms by means of heat recovery from the waste heat of our machines and design our production processes to be paperless as far as possible.
After we have combined these and many following continuous activities for the environment in an environmental management system, we have in the meantime been awarded by the Bavarian Environmental Pact and since July 2013 we are DIN EN ISO 14001 certified.
We are a strong link in every production chain, creating value for our customers.
Our quality standards are high, and their implementation is checked at every point of the production process. Quality management is, of course, certified by an independent institution. Furthermore, quality is a matter of honor for the entire company as well as for each individual employee.
Today’s EM Gerätebau GmbH is founded as Elektromechanische Gerätebau GmbH. In the beginning, there is the mechanical-manual production of simple sheet metal parts.
Relocation to Mammendorf and opening of today’s central and modern production site.
1980 / 90
Introduction of new computer-aided technologies to increase precision and productivity. A healthy balance between traditional craftsmanship and time- and cost-efficient production is achieved.
Targeted measures in the area of automation, process control and quality assurance are started with the aim of expanding production with a focus on comprehensive CNC series and system production with the highest quality standards for major customers and well-known brand manufacturers.
The insolvency of the parent company confronts the current team of shareholders with its greatest challenge to date. The knowledge of the potential of the company, of the correctness of the chosen course, and of the responsibility for the employees allows only one consequence: They transfer the company into independence and put it on its own, solid feet as EM Gerätebau GmbH.
The goals of saving the jobs at the site, preserving the know-how acquired over decades and exploiting the potential of the company even better are achieved and exceeded: No one has to be laid off, and the workforce has since grown from fifty to seventy. Not a single customer leaves, not a single order is lost – the customer relationships, still strengthened by reliability and openness, survive this transition phase unscathed: the hard-earned trust of our customers pays off for both sides and our vision of sustainable values is confirmed.
2003 / 4
While many competitors relocate their production to other countries, mainly in Eastern Europe, in 2003/2004 for cost reasons, we continue to focus on quality ‘Made in Germany’ by means of sensible automation, homogeneous capacity utilization of our plants and optimization in the logistics area. Our success proves us right.
New machines, the extension of production and storage capacities as well as the further improvement of the material flow and the establishment of new offices require a new hall construction in order to be able to consistently meet the requirements of our customers with the highest quality and precision in the future.
Our regular, sustainable investments in the fundamental values of the company – employees, plants, logistics – have paid off: EM Gerätebau GmbH did not get into difficulties during the global financial and economic crisis in 2009.
In September 2022, the completion of a further production hall including a warehouse and various offices takes place, which extends over three levels.
