Official opening of the new Frenzelit company building in Lexington North Carolina

Internationalization and globalization – frequently used keywords of our time – are alive in the Frenzelit plants in Bad Berneck. The middle-sized family business based in Bad Berneck is continuously expanding its international market activities for more than two decades. 

Now Frenzelit is expanding its presence in the USA by investing approx. 10 million dollars for a new production and office building in Lexington, North Carolina. "With this new building we pool our forces, are even closer to the customers and show that we want to continue to intensify our activities on the US market,” says Dr. Wolfgang Wagner, managing partner of Frenzelit Werke GmbH on the occasion of the official opening ceremony in Lexington in May.

The decision was made in 2014 and the construction was realized in 2015 - by adapting a proven building concept at the Himmelkron location to local conditions. Since the beginning of this year gaskets are cut and expansion joints are built and Frenzelit materials are distributed from this new location.

For Thomas Doetsch, managing director of Frenzelit Werke GmbH this is a consistent, future-oriented step. "Here we merge our two subsidiaries, which have been active in the US market for 25 years, and provide as a recognized partner complete solutions to plant engineering and process industry locally,” he says.
