In 1972, the silk-screen printing technique was introduced by Metalwo, which led to a very large increase in production.
Around 1980, anodising was introduced, and in the mid-1980s the first production of front panels and cabinet parts began.
In 1986, a new factory was built at our current address at Birkemosevej 6 in Hasselager. This had a metal workshop, a serigraphy printing department, a paint shop and an anodising and etching plant.
