EFRE - funded projects

In the context of the European Regional Development Fund and through the support from the Land of Saxony the following projects are currently being implemented:


Digitalization of
business processes

During the course of digitalization a document management system was implemented.

With the help of the document management system, we create the basis for legally compliant electronic archiving and the optimization of the workflow.



New building of the colouration plant

Since December 2019, the Käppler & Pausch GmbH has been operating one of the most modern powder‑coating facilities in Germany. Innovative facility technology guarantees process‑safe coating of your steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium parts up to the highest corrosion‑resistance – category C5 – in accordance with DIN EN ISO 12944 and ensures that high quality standards of customers are met. The production is gentle, energy-saving and environmentally friendly.

This measure was co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the adopted budget of the deputies of the Saxon Landtag.


Directive Sustainable Energy Supply (RL Energy/2014)

In order to recognize potential energy savings, the so-called Saxon Trade Energy Pass (SäGEP) was developed. The focus was on an energy concept for the newly designed powder coating at the Neukirch location. Especially in the thermally very high energy area, but also in other areas, such as lighting, etc. energy efficiency measures were implemented.

The first measures from the SäGEP were:

1. The conversion of the existing Hall 5 of Käppler and Pausch GmbH to LED technology. For this purpose, different manufacturers were compared and the light calculations, economic considerations and quality/warranty conditions were evaluated.

2. Energetic optimization measures of the colouration plant of Käppler and Pausch GmbH by using waste heat for the heating of chemical storage containers.


This measures are co-financed by tax funds on the basis of the adopted budget of the deputies of the Saxon Landtag.
