1995 KMH maintains a small installation team and now offers its customers complete pipe assembly, including insulated versions. From now on the motto is: “everything from one source”. In spite of the great success, all available hands are needed in the company during the following 1.5 years and the installation team returns to KMH production.
1996 KMH continues to grow and, after completed extension measures in the production area, follows the extension to an impressive administration building.
1999 As there is no further possibility for expansion at the original company premises in Harpstedt, KMH has to move. Suitable halls are soon found. The highly motivated KMH team need only a weekend for the relocation, “with bag and baggage“, to the neighbouring village of Bassum, 15 km away. The new premises have over 15,000 sq. m., half of which are available for production, storage and administration. At this point in time the company already has more than 80 employees, who all willingly “roll up their sleeves“ for the move. Everyone is happy to have “more room at last“– and a powder coating system which ensures a high quality standard for the coated pipes and pipe segments.
