14/07/2017 Manhole made from ecopolytec with high wood content impresses jury
Langmatz GmbH, based in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, has once again proven that the intensive research done by modern, innovative SMEs is driving forward technical developments and ecology. At a state reception with around 400 guests for the 25th anniversary of C.A.R.M.E.N e.V., Ilse Aigner, Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, awarded this year’s Ernst Pelz Award to Langmatz GmbH for developing and launching a manhole made with renewable, foam-moulded materials.
The occupational safety and health protection unit at Langmatz was certified by the BG RCI employer liability insurance association in August 2016. The company has thus successfully completed a major milestone in establishing its occupational safety management system (OSM).
In Mai 2016, Langmatz was certified by AOK as a “Healthy Company”. The Bavarian AOK branch, AOK Bayern, supports companies in providing systematic occupational health management (OHM) with sustainable structures and in designing work processes in a healthier manner. As of this year, companies demonstrating outstanding performance are being awarded by AOK Bayern with Bronze, Silver, or Gold certificates.
Recently senior management of Langmatz GmbH welcomed an important and experienced business partner Bayernwerk AG represented by Reimund Gotzel, Chairman of the Board, and Dr. Alexander Fenzl, Managing Director of Bayernwerk Natur GmbH.
Bayern Innovativ GmbH issues an invitation to the second cooperation forum “Wood as a new material” taking place in Regensburg on 12 November 2015. One of the experts speaking at this event is Mr Josef Lohr from Langmatz, whose paper is entitled “Further development of WPC technology for efficient, sustainable infrastructure – Products – Processes, economy, ecology”. On this occasion Mr Lohr will be presenting the new material ecopolytec to a wider audience for the first time.
The 4th Langmatz Broadband Symposium and Open House was a resounding success.

Langmatz GmbH and SKZ Würzburg have made it to the final round of Europe’s most prestigious environmental business awards with their project, ‘Renewable raw materials in infrastructure products’.

On the first weekend in July 2014, the Langmatz artificial turf field in the “Stadion am Gröben” stadium in Garmisch-Partenkirchen was officially inaugurated. The new construction of the artificial turf field was an important step into the future for the 1. FC Garmisch-Partenkirchen – as “the demand for young players cannot be met without long-term planned, intensive youth promotion,” says Reinhard Kreusel, CFO of Langmatz.
The third Broadband Symposium hosted by Langmatz at the Convention Centre in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and at our Oberau manufacturing site, was a great success. Approx. 250 participants from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other companies listened to comprehensive presentations discussing the planning, installation, operation and documentation of FTTx networks.
As an attractive employer and active IHK vocational training company we take care of the education of qualified young specialists. The new film about vocational training at Langmatz presents the variety of different apprenticeships offered by us to future trainees.
