FRITSCH Bakery Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, which was taken over by the MULTIVAC Group two and a half years ago, was able to attract an inspiring increase in orders of approximately 40% in the previous fiscal year. One of the internationally leading manufacturers of bakery machines and lines, the company from Markt Einersheim, Lower Franconia, is profiting increasingly from the extensive sales and service network of the parent group, which has been working actively for FRITSCH since the takeover in 2019. Worldwide, MULTIVAC has more than 80 subsidiaries on all continents. “Thanks to the close cooperation based on partnership, we were able to gain a number of large orders despite the continued strain on the global economy following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Managing Director Frank Gabriel.
The global span of MULTIVAC’s sales and service network is reflected in FRITSCH’s order intake. In addition to Germany, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and other neighbouring European countries, large orders were also received from producers in Asia and North America. “We are confident that the global economy will continue to recover from the setbacks caused by the pandemic and that we will continue our growth course under the MULTIVAC Group umbrella in 2022,” explained Managing Director Andreas Eyd.
“We are delighted to see this absolutely fantastic trend in FRITSCH’s sales. Local and regional experts are already mobile in over 80 countries around the world. This lays the foundation for establishing the bakery segment as another solid pillar in the MULTIVAC Group,” said Christian Traumann, Group President of MULTIVAC.
Given the excellent sales trend, FRITSCH is currently looking for a new location in Lower Franconia in order to position itself optimally for further growth in the long term. Up to now, the company has its headquarters in Markt Einersheim and additionally has assembly halls in Kitzingen. The new building will serve to merge the two locations and create additional capacity. “We definitely want to stay in the region because of our employees, some of whom are highly specialised,” said Eyd.
For the new location, the two managing directors are reckoning with a space requirement of 100,000 square metres. The move should take place within the next three years.
