Agricultural engineering company settles in the Dyn A 5 industrial estate – Ettenheim


The company Krumm Landtechnik und Motorgeräte from Malterdingen wants to build a branch in the inter-communal industrial area Dyn A 5 of Ettenheim and Mahlberg.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held on Tuesday with representatives of all companies involved and the two cities.

The company is headquartered in Malterdingen.

It was founded in 1972 by Willi Krumm in the converted basement and the barn of his parents’ house in the town center as a one-man business. After three years he moved into a new building with a workshop and an office in the industrial area of ​​Malterdingen, and in 1990 an exhibition hall for small appliances was added. The company opened a branch in Gundelfingen 15 years ago, and in 2010 an open hall for the presentation of tractors, municipal tractors and large equipment. According to the company, the company has a total of around 30 employees. Another ten to fifteen will be added at the Ettenheim location, says Max Müller, who runs the company together with Melanie Krumm and Liane Hefter, the daughters of company founder Willi Krumm.

The company moves closer to the customers from the Ortenau

The company sells, maintains and repairs agricultural machinery and other agricultural equipment. Customers include farmers and winemakers, but also amateur gardeners. The idea of ​​building a branch in the Ortenaukreis had come up years ago. Some customers in Ortenau find the location in northern Breisgau too far away. “Now we are happy that everything worked out,” said Müller.

On an area of ​​around 1,600 square meters, two building complexes – for the workshop as well as for office and exhibition rooms – are to be built with a total of 15,000 cubic meters of converted space. A so-called Stihl concept store is also planned. The company Winterhalter and Maurer from Malterdingen was commissioned with the planning and construction management. Both building complexes are to be heated 100 percent by renewable energies, said Müller. He did not want to comment on the exact amount invested.

Green light for earthworks

Ettenheim’s mayor Bruno Metz, who is also chairman of the inter-communal special purpose association, welcomed the company to Dyn A 5 and presented the partially red dot with which it has the green light for the earthworks. The opening of the branch is planned between April and June 2021.

More than 20 companies with a total of around 300 employees are now located in the Dyn A 5 industrial estate. They bring Ettenheim and Mahlberg tax revenues of around 800,000 euros annually. Metz spoke of an attractive mix of trade and production. The Krumm company fits in well there, said the mayor.

The last free area

The almost one hectare property on Nicola-Tesla-Straße, which the company Krumm Landtechnik und Motorgeräte acquired on the unanimous decision of the members of the association, is located in Ettenheim. It was the last vacant lot in the existing development area. Adjacent there is another around six hectares of commercial space. The aim of the two cities of Ettenheim and Mahlberg is to create building rights here too, Mayor Bruno Metz emphasized on Tuesday. However, there has long been disagreement between the two cities about the operation of the pellet plant and the drawing up of a legally binding development plan for the commercial area. A central point in the development plan process is the question of whether a decision must be taken unanimously or not. Yes, say Ettenheim and the local authority, no, says Mahlberg. At the groundbreaking, Metz said that there were now several expert reports on the pellet plant’s emissions (noise and smell) for the development plan. A meeting with everyone involved – including representatives of the pellet plant and experts – was planned for the end of March, but it had to be postponed due to the corona pandemic. “The aim is to have the appointment take place before the summer break, if possible, in order to receive decision-making documents for the communal committees in Mahlberg and Ettenheim,” said Metz.
