From the Upper Rhine around the world

For more than 40 years the name ERNST has been a buzzword for first-class quality and reliability as well as for sophisticated technology and processes. We have been able to surprise our customers time and time again with exceptionally innovative solutions on the way to series-production readiness. This has earned us a global reputation as a development partner for even the trickiest cases.

Striving for excellence

ERNST On-screen: Always on the move 

It is not all that easy to understand everything we do or to capture the real spirit at ERNST, especially if you’re standing on the outside looking in. So, come on in and have a look. We think that you will be delighted to see the best-in-class operations at ERNST Unformtechnik. 


More than 680 employees at 4 locations

The company was established in Oberkirch on the Upper Rhine in Germany. In the meantime the ERNST Group has approximately more than 680 employees (as of Sept. 2016) at four locations: Germany, France, USA and China.

Development and project management made in Germany

Despite our international orientation, development and project management are still located at our German headquarters in Oberkirch. Employees from our international sites spend time here to familiarize themselves with the standardized ERNST processes. This enables us to carry out international projects at all our locations to the same quality standards and with the same level of efficiency.

Faithful staff and loyal customers

One important factor in ERNST's success is the unusually high degree of identification with, and loyalty to, our medium-sized company with its open and familial atmosphere. We also cultivate this constructive teamwork beyond the company's boundaries in our dealings with our global customers. Many of them greatly appreciate this and have had a close relationship with our company and the ERNST name for a long time.
