1960 – 1970: The starting of investment casting!
In 1960 the today’s enterprise started its production of investment casting parts with the lost-wax casting process at the former “Hillerian stable”. Back then the company only had a staff of eight employees. In 1962 the first premise on Industriestraße 18 was added until the company finally moved to the business park “Industriestraße” in 1964. Additionally the effective surface was enlarged from 80m² to 850m². In 1968 the company was renamed „Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Blank GmbH & Co. KG”.
