||BACK TO THE BEGINNINGSERDRICH Umformtechnik has been active in the market for almost 50 years. Founded as a small business in the Baden region of Oberkirch, the company has developed consistently and reliably into a global player in the area of metal forming technology.
Background, noteworthy events, developments at a glance - 1962 to present.
Rolf Sander and Adolf Hättig lay the cornerstone for SANDER Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG.
In the first few years, the company produced mainly cutting and stamping tools for non-cutting sheet metal shaping. It then began to also fabricate stamped and bent parts in series.
Because of the growth of the company, the headquarters are moved from Oberkirch to Renchen-Ulm and the products are divided into the segments of tool building and automation, stamping and bending, deep drawing, fine blanking and component fabrication. In years following, SANDER Umformtechnik is recognized for its quality products, making a name for itself as a high-performance supplier primarily to the automobile industry.
The subsidiary SANDER Automation GmbH is founded, with headquarters in Renchen. Shortly thereafter, the first SANDER transfer devices are running off the assembly line. At the same time, the parent company SANDER Umformtechnik begins with the development and manufacture of smaller units with mid-range production stroke rates for sheet shaping.
Under the direction of Georg Erdrich, an additional subsidiary is founded, EUT Erdrich Umformtechnik GmbH & CO. KG, in the city of Sömmerda (State of Thuringia) which itself enjoys a long tradition of metal processing.
Further developments in SANDER transfer units allow for the devices to be used in hot and warm forging of metals.
Erdrich Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG becomes an independent company. , Nicolas und Georg Erdrich, proprietors. The company belongs to the SANDER Group, alongside SANDER Umformtechnik. Concurrently, the production capacity of steel brake pistons is increased to approximately eight million. In the same year, the company is awarded with the Thuringia Innovation Prize.
Because of the great success with steel brake pistons, a second factory is opened in July 2003 in Sömmerda. Capacity thereby doubles to 17 million pieces.
Sander Automation GmbH becomes independent and the third member of the SANDER Group next to SANDER Umformtechnik and Erdrich Umformtechnik.
In Krnov (Czech Republic) a fabrication plant is built, which has since housed the world’s most modern brake piston manufacturing.
A subsidiary in China opens.
SANDER Group is reconfigured. Beginning July 1, the production plants Erdrich and SANDER merge into ERDRICH Umformtechnik. Logo and website are changed along with them.
