To take diverse ideas for the material stainless steel and put them into practice – this was the vision that moved Dieter Glahs and Gerhard Welkener to start up the company GLA-WEL in Friesenweg
in the centre of Melle in 1996. Today GLA-WEL manufactures extremely complex metal components, from stair banisters and floodwater bulkheads to exclusive air-conditioned dog trailers, for the
police, for example.
With the new production hall, covering 4,000 square metres, and the new office building with around 800 square metres, GLA-WEL can now bundle its entire production activities at the Denkmalsweg
premises and thus optimise the process workflows.
