Vive la France
The first subsidiary. Situated just across the Rhine in Niederbronn-les-Bains, Alsace.
Ernst S.A.R.L. Découpage – Emboutissage was founded as the first subsidiary of the ERNST Group in 1997. Since then, ERNST France has been fabricating the complete range of stamped and formed parts in the well-known ERNST quality at its French site in Niederbronn-les-Bains. With this step, ERNST also sent a clear signal to its French customers. The direct local contact persons facilitated the successful business development with our French neighbors.
The plant in Alsace is supported by the close proximity of the ERNST headquarters in Oberkirch, Germany in all matters concerning development, production and logistics. The combination of German development and French production has proven to be an appealing offer for numerous customers in Central Europe.
