In this year, the young Albin Göpfert passed his master’s certificate. He established a mechanical engineering workshop at his parents’ residence in Marktbreit. Albin Göpfert repaired machines of all kinds, forged railings and produced seats for tractors. And he invested in the extension of the workshop. During this time, a cardboard box factory asked him to modernise their factory equipment. Subsequent to this, Albin Göpfert received his first order for a cutting and slitting machine.
In order to save money, Albin Göpfert invested in a simple, cheap lathe. An initial error. But he turned even this experience into a profit: from now on, quality is his only standard.
