Metzger & Mendle

1. The company


Company Metzger & Mendle GmbH was founded in Fischach in 1922. Fischach is a small city
located approx. 25 km west of Augsburg, close to the so-called „Stauden - Naturpark Westliche
Waelder", a region of natural scrubland and protected forests. In its early days the company
manufactured horn combs, then started to produce salad servers and egg spoons made from
synthetic resins. Later on the product range was expanded with salt & pepper shakers and
Perspex glass buttons.
In 1955 many of these household articles were decorated with hand-printed gentian and
edelweiss motifs.

Since 1970 Metzger & Mendle has been a member of the group Hoerauf & Kohler.

In 1975 office and school requisites faced another enlargement, starting with the "Desk-Boy",
a molded unit desk-tidy that was bought from over 1 Million customers in 1976. At present,
those accessoires are being produced by 17 injection moulding machines ranging from
40t to 650t.

The headquarters operate on 15,000 m², M&M thereby utilizing state-of-the-art machinery in
synthetic materials processing for manufacturing. Customer orientated services also include
a screen printing department along with internal assembly such as blister packs and all
necessary packing facilities.

In 2009 M&M expanded its program again by acquiring "office requisites in synthetic material"
from Voss+Sohn GmbH and is pleased to announce that this incorporation was extremely
successful, especially with the suppert of valued customers.

On top, in autumn 2011, we implemented 30 injection molding tools from company
Westo GmbH & Co. Kunststofftechnik (plasics technology) in our machine park. Thus the
procuct line of M&M has not only been additionally extended by acrylic goods suchs as
storage shelf, magazine file, note boxes, etc. but also by some products made from polystyrene.

At present the group and its foreign shareholders emply roughly 700 people and achieve an
annual turnover of approx. 75 Million Euros.
