People who remain loyal to a company throughout their working lives have become rare. Josef Meßmann is one of these exceptions. He joined the former Buchtal AG on 1 August 1967 at the age of 14. After an unprecedented career, he has been in charge of the factory since 2013, where a complex range of ceramic tiles for public and private areas is manufactured. Today, the company is part of Deutsche Steinzeug Cremer & Breuer AG, headquartered in Witterschlick near Bonn. After almost 52 years with the company, Josef Meßmann is now going into well-earned retirement at the end of April 2019, but will continue to advise the company.
Building law requirements due to the protection of existing buildings from the 1950s as well as the embedding in a residential area made the modernization of the Edeka market in Flensburg a challenge which the leading architectural office Hansen mastered skillfully. The result is a shopping centre with an extraordinary atmosphere that combines old and new in a special way. Stylistically matching floor tiles as a connecting element and fundamental basis make an important contribution to this. Representative XXL wall tiles in the meat counter area avoid unadorned sterility and set attractive accents.
The municipal site between the Jewish Museum, the new TAZ building and the former flower wholesale market hall at Kreuzberg was not simply awarded to the highest bidder, but to the one who submitted the best concept for a development. This procedure alone distinguishes the "Integrative building project at the former flower wholesale market" (IBeB) from most other German residential buildings. Also unique is the fact that the project development was not the responsibility of a group of investors, but rather of a merger of Selbstbaugenossenschaft (building cooperative) Berlin with the architects' working group ifau | Heide & von Beckerath. The three-dimensional ceramic elements of the Craft series specially manufactured for the ETICS facade give the building an unmistakably plastic appearance which subtly underlines all these special features without pushing itself into the foreground.
In 2019 again, Agrob Buchtal used the internationally leading BAU trade fair for the dialogue with the relevant professional target groups including planners, craftsmen and dealers. In the usual place (pavilion A4 / stand 500) the company presented up-to-date solutions in the building ceramics sector for public and private areas.
The buying of food is a sensuous, haptic experience at which the checking of the consistency of fruit, vegetables, meat or fish and impulse buys play an important part. In this connection, of course the products offered are essential, but also the environment in which they are presented. The floor covering is of particular importance: functionally because everything happens on it, and visually because it has a decisive influence on the overall impression. So far, its renewal has required great technical efforts and a lot of time. Now there is a solution which avoids these disadvantages and opens up new potentials: DryTile floor tiles of Agrob Buchtal. A convincing example for this is Dornseifers Frischemarkt (food product market) at Much/Germany. There, approximately 2,000 square metres of new tiles were laid in only four (!) working days in the autumn of 2018.
