Mortar pad production expanded

As of immediately, the Maxit operations base in Azendorf, Upper Franconia, is enjoying an additional new mortar pad production hall and a progressive lime kiln. At the inaugural ceremony on July 9, 2016, Bavarian Economics Minister Ilse Aigner dedicated the new plant and equipment before an audience of some 1 000 invited guests. Thanks to the new hall, mortar pads can now be produced simultaneously on as many as 27 production lines – compared to the previous five. Soon, Maxit will be turning out up to 200 000 pads per day – enough for about 66 single-family homes. “Our investment was necessary“, explains Franken Maxit managing partner Hans-Dieter Groppweis, „because our previous scale of production no longer sufficed to meet demand.“

Until now, Maxit has been producing solely for the German market, but export opportunities are being investigated. The mortar pad trademark (German name Mörtelpad) is internationally valid, and a European patent is pending. Besides, these pads are so simple to use, that they are practically predestined to breach barriers of language and construction practice.

By the company‘s own estimate, some 200 building contractors already know how to use the pads correctly. A new version of the accompanying wetting system is in the pipeline, too.
