01 |Our history
Karl Spreitzer founded a small turned parts company in 1974. In the beginning he alone produces turned parts for the automotive industry and for mechanical engineering on two machines. Further machines, first employees and early automation technology followed soon. Today KSG Spreitzer is one of the leading manufacturers of turned and milled parts in the Southwest of Germany. For customers from all over the world, we bring machining into the 21st century. Expertise of KSG Spreitzer makes it possible.
03 | Past & future
Karl Spreitzer founds our company. With two machines he produces turned parts for the automotive and engineering industry.
The signs point to automation. CNC technology and automatic bar magazines take efficiency to a new level.
More machines need more space. That is why we rebuild and move solemnly into the new production hall in 1985.
The first CNC-controlled multi-slide lathe is inaugurated. A big step towards automation and digitalization for KSG Spreitzer.
Later in the year a EDP-aided production planning follows. A truly eventful year.
At the end of the year we purchase CNC-controlled wire eroding machines and grinding machines for in-house tool production. The year 1988 is throughout future-oriented.
The EDP software is supposed to take over more and more complex tasks, but the providers on the market are hardly lagging behind. We go our own way with the in-house software ELPLAN. Like this we are in optimum control of the functions and it enables us to plan and optimise everything electronically, from stocks to machine capacity.
The first customers are demanding a certification according to DIN-EN-ISO 9002. We recognise the signs of the times early and our quality management system can be certified without much effort. In 1995 we receive the certification for the first time.
More machines need more space ... We already know that. Once again the excavators roll and we move into the extended building in 1996.
Measurement technology is the be-all and end-all of precision. This is why we invest in the latest coordinate measurement method, giving us a key advantage in the market.
We are building the shipping department. Many hardworking hands ensure a safe packaging and thus a smooth shipping. The new extension impresses with a lot of space and bright workplaces.
Repetitive work on machines is transferred to first industrial robots. The workers who have been replaced by the robots are trained and used for more demanding tasks. A gain in efficiency and a gain in qualified staff.
A new loading port. The loading of trucks can now be carried out with optimal weather protection and with the highest efficiency. A necessity in the harsh climate of the Swabian Alb. We do everything for the quality.
Video measurement and contourographs bring efficiency to quality management.
We are bursting at the seams and there's only one option. A new building. In 2007 we solemnly move into the hall with office wing.
We get the Innovation Award of the German Economy for ELPLAN. What was initially considered a risky step turned out to be future-oriented after a few years.
For the first time we are certified according to the quality management standard DIN-EN-ISO 9001:2008.
We are increasingly using renewable energies in the form of photovoltaics. Over the years we are gradually converting to renewable energy. Like this, we can cover a considerable part of our energy consumption with the power of the sun.
We are certified according to DIN-EN-ISO 9001:2015.
Digitization and networking. At KSG Spreitzer tablets are already used extensively for data acquisition and process analysis in production.
A look into the future. With further digitalization and measures of automation we will maintain an advantage in terms of technology and efficiency. We stock our warehouses with future-oriented materials and maintain our friendly relationship with lathe and milling machine manufacturers. So that we can continue to say with pride: Expertise and efficiency of KSG Spreitzer give you the key advantage – today and tomorrow.
