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

The Käppler & Pausch GmbH is building a new colouration plant at the headquarters in Neukirch that meets today's most demanding requirements.

All service and support activities relating to the range of metalworking can be offered in one location. The areas involved before and after production can be integrated more efficiently than previously in the whole process. The new, ultra-modern coating plant ensures that high quality standards of customers are met and reduces production times. The production is gentle, energy-saving and environmentally friendly. The new hall construction will be completed at the end of november 2019.


Directive Sustainable Energy Supply (RL Energy/2014)

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

The first measures from the SäGEP are:

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