ENGRAVING GMBH

As part of an Asset Deal, the proprietors of UNGRICHT founded the company DORNBUSCH ENGRAVING GMBH

As part of an Asset Deal, the proprietors of UNGRICHT founded the company DORNBUSCH ENGRAVING GMBH and acquired the operating assets of DORNBUSCH GRAVUREN GMBH in Kempen out of bankruptcy.  They fully continue the production in Kempen.

 

Under the direction of the three proprietors Burkard Ungricht, Gregor Ungricht and Markus Ungricht all necessary arrangements will be immediately initiated to continue current orders and to resume business operations to their full extend. For DORNBUSCH GRAVUREN GMBH, founded in 1900, the insolvency proceedings had been opened on 1st of August and the production has been continuously carried on by the insolvency administrator. The new proprietors consider the traditional production techniques for the surface design of embossing rollers, together with the highly qualified staff, as a strength of the company. With the now secured jobs, the top position in global competition of this production company is to be maintained under the new name DORNBUSCH ENGRAVING GMBH.
