Change and continuity
Flad System Components GmbH & Co. KG has been growing for more than 30 years. Many things have changed in the course of four decades, especially in our technological environment. Flad System Components has always met the various challenges time and again by promoting improvements and breaking new grounds.
Extension of production facilities (optimisation of the manufacturing and logistics interface, reduction of material provisioning times and increase of flow rates). A new storage system for smooth supply chain management, additional services with regard to complex components and strict separation of components for the aviation and aerospace industries’ customers. In 2015, 18 employees work for Flad System Components.
Succession planning: foundation of the Flad System Components GmbH & Co. KG by contributing the single enterprise; participation and assignment of the management of the company to the children Jürgen Flad and Carmen Mauch.
Expansion of business areas, specialisation on the aviation and aerospace branch as well as on high-strength, acid-free and stainless steels.
Constant growth leads to the construction of a new building at today’s Bubsheim site with a floor area of 1,495 m². Thus, the foundation of the company’s ongoing future-oriented expansion was laid.
Specialisation on electrical and sensor engineering products begins.
