For Kurtz Ersa, the year of 2014 was completely under the sign of the 235th anniversary. The arc of suspense went from the past via the present into the future in the anniversary year. With our company chronicles, presented in the month of foundation, March, and new premises for our company archive and, naturally, the hammer museum with the restored hammer mill, we have made our history come alive at the company’s origin in Hasloch.

The present gave us an extraordinarily good year in 2014 – we have grown way above the average of mechanical engineering in Germany, have further increased our productivity and created more than one hundred new jobs. This also and above all became possible thanks to our customers, with whom we are often connected by years of partnerships – our sincere thanks for this and for a number of constructive cooperations! And to secure our future, we have further extended our technology leadership and gained numerous new customers.


There was a great atmosphere at the large employees’ festival in September on the “Barthelsmühle”. But there was still time to look into the future together with the renowned Swabian professor Dr. Hans-Jörg Bullinger and at the large technological and societal challenges waiting for us there.

For Kurtz Ersa, 2014 all told was a year in which we were able to show ourselves from our best side. We are happy and grateful for this. But after the anniversary is before the anniversary. We at Kurtz Ersa know from years of tradition that you have to work hard for such anniversaries with consistent top performances. We do this with a sporting ambition and joy in the cooperation with our customers and partners. This issue of the Kurtz Ersa magazine also reports on some interesting highlights.


A contemplative Christmas period, a good start to 2015
and last, but not least have fun reading!


Good luck! Yours, Rainer Kurtz
