Max Frank GmbH & Co. KG has been at the forefront of developing new technologies for the construction industry for 50 years. Now managed by the second generation of the Frank family from our headquarters in Leiblfing, Bavaria, it is an international company with 13 branches in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.
Max Frank senior, the company's founder, started the business with extruded fibre reinforced concrete spacers, which are now used in concrete structures all over the world. The product range has expanded through the years with the addition of four other business units. These units include products related to formwork, reinforcement, sealing technologies and building acoustics. Specifically for the reinforcement systems business unit, the product range includes Stabox® rebar connectors, threaded coupler, dowel systems and the Egcobox® insulated cantilever connection system.
Despite the current economic crisis, the FRANK Group has expanded significantly in recent years in both Europe and internationally. The globalisation strategy of Max Frank GmbH & Co. KG centres on manning international branch offices with local employees, who speak the local language and are fully aware of local and regional cultures. They are also very aware of the specific technical and commercial needs of their individual markets.
Out of the FRANK workforce of some 540 employees, some 120 of these are located internationally in our 13 foreign branches. This network is helping to facilitate the development of the growing markets in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and East Asia.
