Strähle continued to grow and moved into the new production site in Eisental, Waiblingen with 3000 m² of production space. The handicraft business evolved over the years into an efficient, progressive company which furnished numerous office buildings and schools with partition walls and cupboard units.

The Strähle steel mullion is a milestone for the industrial sector

In 1997 the second production site opened in Borkheide, south of Berlin.


The second production site was opened in Borkheide, south of Berlin. Partition wall systems are produced here in 3500 m² of production space and distributed to eastern and northern Germany. The export share also steadily increased, initially focussing on Switzerland and Austria but later featuring system partnerships throughout Europe.


Paul Strähle and Florian Strähle join the family business, meaning that as of 2005 the company was led by the third and fourth-generation members of the Strähle family.

Developers, architects and project developers can experience over 1400 m² of Strähle partition wall systems in an innovative and detailed showroom.
