Toolmaker master Klaus Malsy founded the company ῝Klaus Malsy Industrievertretung῞ in his basement and later in the garage of his house in Feldstrasse. There, in his one-man shop, he manufactured the first sheet metal parts for industrial customers.
As the space in the existing location was no longer sufficient, the company relocated to an old out-building in the centre of the town of Froschhausen. At the same time, the company invested in a CNC controlled stamping machine which opened up new production options. In the following months, the first employees were hired.
After a continuously growing number of regular customers and the associated growth in production, the company relocated to its own newly constructed production hall, with administration building, at Sandborn 18. With the move to the new production hall, the first laser cutting systems were installed in the Rhine-Main region, giving the company a leap in technology in sheet metal processing.
With the employment of a team of 20 employees at the company, the production area expanded to 1,500 m² with a second production hall, in the direction of the motorway.
Due to further expansion, Hall 3 was built. With this provision, the production area was then expanded to more than 2,000 m².
In December, the managing director and company founder, Klaus Malsy passed away due to a serious illness. With the great support of the long-term employees, his wife, Edith Malsy decided to assume the directorship and to continue to manage the company.
As a further milestone in the company history, the decision was made to purchase the world’s fastest fully-automated stamping machine. Now the company KM Blechbearbeitung GmbH is able to manufacture products 24 hours a day, automated without personnel, thereby reaching a new dimension in automation.
With the entry of the son Boris Malsy into the company, and the associated expansion of company management in the following year, the family-owned company is now in the second generation.
With the purchase of two laser welding systems, the welding process in internal manufacturing could be further optimised and adapted to a new technological level which was not possible using typical techniques.
At the beginning of 2018, construction of an additional production hall started on a production area of approx. 2,500 m².
As part of the completion of the hall construction in November 2018, all departments and production workplaces were restructured and aligned for the future.
In order to further improve our quality requirements and the quality of the parts for our customers, we have decided to have our quality management system certified.
Since February 2019 KM Blechbearbeitung GmbH has been certified according to the latest ISO 9001: 2015 guideline. Our management system is now subject to regular voluntary monitoring.
By investing in a collaborative welding robot, it is now possible to automatically weld TIG and MAG. The latest technology in robotics now makes this economical even for medium lot sizes.
