The Jennewein Metalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG with its headquarters in Abtsgmünd-Untergröningen combines a tradition of more than 50 years in metal and sheet metal working with numerous well-known reference customers from the fields of plant and mechanical engineering, construction machinery, cleaning technology as well as agriculture and forestry. To this end, around 25 motivated and qualified employees confidently take care of the efficient and on-time production of high-quality welded constructions of up to 5 tons, including milling, surface treatment and assembly of components.

The company is certified according to ISO 9001 and welding technology according to ISO 3834-2 and EN 1090.

2018/2019 has been invested in new technologies, such as a new laser cutting system and a welding robot. The laser can cut steel up to 25mm thick and the welding robot can weld components weighing up to 2 tons. This has opened the door to automation. The aim is to economically produce already small series or recurring complex welding assemblies in high quality and thus to increase competitiveness, especially against low-wage countries. This is also intended to develop additional synergy effects for training and further education in robot programming and automation of welding technology.

The extensive know-how in metal and sheet metal working combined with the inner attitude "to look beyond the sheet metal edge" is the basis for the strategy of Jennewein Metalltechnik to contribute to the development of innovative production methods.
