Company History

In 1951, businessman Alfred Pfletschinger and engineer Eugen Gauch founded the company in Plochingen. Pfletschinger & Gauch was one of the first toolmakers in the region. The production focus was initially on insulators and electronic device housings made of Bakelite.

A generation later, engineer Manfred Pfletschinger and business economist Peter Gauch took over the management of the company and transformed it into a precision moldmaking operation. In the 1980s, production mainly covered molds for video and audio cassettes as well as toys. As a founding member of the Association of German Tool and Mold Makers (VDWF), the company increasingly focused on the further development of mold making from 1992 onwards.

The two current Managing Directors and grandsons of the founders, Roland Pfletschinger and Michael Gauch, have developed the company further: away from a craft orientation and towards an industrial operation. Today, molds are primarily produced for the medical, pharmaceutical and laboratory equipment industries. The company is increasingly focusing on internationalization, digitalization, automation and the expansion of services. The company now employs around 50 people, many of whom were trained in-house.
