So people can work better.
Our passion is simple: Helping your furniture do more. Over the last 70 years, we’ve become one of the leading suppliers in the thriving furniture sector—a reliable partner giving brands the high-value tubular and sheet metal components they need.
Our high-tech work happens at our Spaichingen site in Baden-Württemberg, Germany—where we bring our passion and skill to work every day. On any given day, you’ll find our team cutting sheet metal at a laser center with robot handling system or working a tubing laser center with fiber technology.

2022. 70th anniversary of the company
"Let's celebrate together" was the motto on the occasion of our company’s 70th anniversary. Together with the staff and their families, external employees and retirees, we were able to celebrate a traditional Oktoberfest.
In his speech, Konrad Merkt emphasized that he was proud of the fact that "we have managed to grow together again and again as a team over the past 70 years and to continue to develop the company successfully together.” He looked forward to continuing on this challenging and certainly successful path together with the employees in the future and thanked them for their support, commitment and hard work. With the new powder coating plant, Merkt is once again demonstrating its innovative strength and thus setting the course for the use of future-oriented technologies.
