FRITSCH Bakery Technologies recorded a sales growth of 40% in 2021. The company’s access to the sales and service network of its parent group, MULTIVAC, contributed to the results. Worldwide, MULTIVAC has more than 80 subsidiaries on all continents. “Thanks to the close cooperation based on partnership, we were able to gain a number of large orders despite the continued strain on the global economy following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” detailed Frank Gabriel, Managing Director. The global span of MULTIVAC’s network is reflected in FRITSCH’s order intake: in addition to Germany, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and other neighboring European countries, large orders were also received from producers in Asia and North America.
Given the sales trend, FRITSCH is currently looking for a new location in Lower Franconia. The company is currently headquartered in Markt Einersheim and has assembly halls in Kitzingen. The new building will merge the two locations and create additional capacity. “We definitely want to stay in the region because of our employees, some of whom are highly specialized,” said Andreas Eyd, Managing Director, Fritsch Bakery Technologies.
For the new location, the two managing directors are looking into a space requirement of 100,000 square meters. The move should take place within the next three years, the company anticipates.
“We are delighted to see this absolutely fantastic trend in FRITSCH’s sales. Local and regional experts are already mobile in over 80 countries around the world. This lays the foundation for establishing the bakery segment as another solid pillar in the MULTIVAC Group,” said Christian Traumann, Group President of MULTIVAC.
