An insolvency being winded up with reason and with the insight of all parties concerned must not mean the definitve end of a company and thus the loss of all jobs with it. On the contrary: the history of SCHLOTE Saar shows that things can indeed go differently and that new prospects give some grounds for optimism.
The company's location situated next to the famous Ludwigsberg hill can look back over a long industrial history.
Already in 1876 the company was founded by Ehrhardt und Sehmer, whose production range included steam and gas engines, piston compressors, centrifugal pumps and rolling-mill equipment.
The company KSB took over the site in 1972 and manufactured various types of compressors and pumps.
In 1981 Atlas Copco GmbH moved into the premises to produce air compressors and compressors for the chemical industry.
In 1987 Ernst Haaf entered the company’s history by founding the company Sawema Ernst Haaf GmbH. From then on, started also the production for the automotive and automotive supply industry. Products included cylinder heads, brake components, pump housings, gearboxes etc.
In 1993, the company IWESA Gesellschaft für qualifizierten Maschinenbau mbH started production at the location. Here too, the manufacturing spectrum covered items such as cylinder heads, brake components, pump housings, gearboxes and engine parts.
IWESA GmbH was acquired in August 1999 after its bankruptcy and renamed to IWESA Präzisionstechnik GmbH. In the wake of the worldwide finance crisis, the company fell into financial difficulties at the beginning of 2009. Insolvency proceedings were initiated on 01.04.2009.
On 01.11.2011 the company was taken over by the SCHLOTE GROUP and renamed SCHLOTE Saar GmbH. From its production site in Saarbrücken, SCHLOTE Saar GmbH now supplies parts to the car and commercial vehicle supply industry.
