It was summer 1986 when Albert Blecha began selling metal goods at his then home in Flatz, Lower Austria. In the beginning, he only dealt in standard profiles and delivered them to his customers in person. Soon, however, there was too little storage space, too little time and there were too many orders for a one-man operation, so he decided to move the business to Neunkirchen. The first employees went to work on Föhrenwaldstrasse and the company premises expanded over the years.
The product range was also gradually expanded at what is now the former Föhrenwaldstrasse facility. Special profiles and aluminium fence systems designed and developed in-house were incorporated into the programme. These were followed later by the range of equipment parts for tanker vehicles – to be found today under fittings. For a full-range supplier, the programme naturally also had to include sheets and panels, so, little by little, today's well-rounded product range of a globally active aluminium wholesaler was developed.
The workforce grew in line with order volume and soon the premises on Föhrenwaldstrasse were too small. Work began on constructing a new office building and several warehouses at the current site on Triftweg in Neunkirchen, where operation at full capacity commenced in 2008. At present, 100 employees from 15 different countries are employed on the 36,000 m2 company premises.
The site on Föhrenwaldstrasse in Neunkirchen still serves as a storage facility and the former office building is now used for employee accommodation.
It is now more than 30 years since what is today Ingrid L. Blecha Ges.m.b.H was founded. Today the company is regarded regionally and globally as an ambitious, innovative business that offers customers outstanding service, quality and sophisticated aluminium products.
