Company founded by Anton and Gunda Messingschlager on Pödeldorfer Street in Bamberg.
Company moves into Brennerstraße 8, just behind the Bamberg train station.
Destruction of the company building by air attack.
Death of Anton Messingschlager. His son, Rudolf Messingschlager takes over the company at the age of 15 years old.
The company moves into a newly acquired site in the “Vorderen Graben“ in Bamberg, Germany.
The company moves again due to space and infrastructural reasons from Bamberg's city center to Lauter.
The final company move to approximately 13,500 m² of purchased land and construction of an office building at the present site.
This relocation was subsequently found to be the right decision, because over the years the company had enough room to adapt our offices and warehouses to growing demand. At this point the new location caters to transportation routes and is ideal as the next motorway exit only is located only 4 km away and the next ICE-Station located only 10 km away.
