a+f GmbH is steadily expanding with the SunCarrier – since 2004
The company was founded in Würzburg. The company originally distributes processed cast iron, steel and aluminum parts.
The GILDEMEISTER group acquires majority stake-holding in a&f Stahl und Maschinenbau GmbH.
The GILDEMEISTER group completely takes over the a&f Stahl- und Maschinenbau GmbH.
In September the product development of the first SunCarrier 220 began. A robust, low-maintenance and reliable tracking system was the goal. Experience and know-how of a+f GmbH in mechanical engineering soon proved to be useful for the construction. After wind-tunnel-testing, the first 3 SunCarrier have been installed in Würzburg and a 2-year-testing phase began.
