Insolvency that is rationally handled with deliberation and insight by all those involved does not have to mean the definitive end of a company and the loss of all jobs within it. On the contrary: the history of SCHLOTE Saar shows that things can indeed go differently and that the new prospects opened up give every reason for confidence.
Our company's location situated next to the famous Ludwigsberg hill can look back over a long industrial history.
The industrial site was first established as early as 1876 by the company 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.
Ernst Haaf then assumed responsibility in 1987 with the foundation of Sawema Ernst Haaf GmbH. This also marked the start of production for the automobile and automotive supply industry. Products included cylinder heads, brake components, pump housings, and transmission cases.
In 1993, 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, transmission cases 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 instituted 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 provides parts for the car and commercial vehicle supply industry.
