■ Contribution against housing shortages in Keltern's district
■ Former Bauer-Walser-Arial opens up new perspectives
On the large area at Hauptstrasse 22 in Weiler: Keltern's Mayor Steffen Bochinger (right) and Karlheinz Karner from Bauer-Walser AG present the area that has already been cleared.
Keltern's mayor, Steffen Bochinger, speaks of an icing on the cake and a milestone in
urban development at the on-site meeting on the now leveled demolition site at Hauptstrasse 22 in Weiler.
Also present is Mr. Karlheinz Karner, the chairman of Bauer-Walser AG from
Ellmendingen, one of the largest employers in the wine-growing community with currently 143 employees. His company had sold the industrial site to the community.
During the on-site visit to the area on Friday morning, Karner let it be known that investors had already come to his company. As a company with strong ties to the community, they were aware of their social responsibility. The municipality can now initiate a development at this point that can meet the needs of the people in Weiler.
According to the town hall chief, it would be conceivable to erect a massive building facing the main street in order to build smaller residential units in the rear area of the 4978 square meter property. Everything should of course fit into the living environment. According to the head of administration, it is important that the company mentioned was ready to sell the large property to the community at a fair price.
Karner attested to the mayor that he was always ready to listen to economic issues and wished the location every success in the interests of Weiler.
We support beeswe.love in 2021
and look forward to a year with and for our bees.
Let's start small - and make a big difference!
BAUER-WALSER AG bees
With our commitment to beeswe.love, we sponsor a bee colony for one year and enable the cultivation of a large bee pasture or wild and orchard meadows.
Because every contribution to the protection of bees and insects counts!
And when many “start small”, something really big emerges in the crowd that has a long-term benefit for all of our lives.
We look forward to a great year with our bees!
A challenging year for all of us is coming to an end.
We herewith like to express our gratitude for the good cooperation and the trust you bestowed on us and are also looking forward to serve you again to your complete
satisfaction in the coming years.
“Donation instead of gifts”
As in previous years, we refrain from sending Christmas presents to our customers.
We donate the amount intended for this to the Montessori Children's House in Pforzheim instead. We are sure that you would likewise appreciate and understand this initiative.
On behalf of the entire team, we are sending you contemplative Christmas greetings and
wish you, your families and employees a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy
New Year in this rather difficult time.
On the occasion of the completion of our extended building in January, the management
of Bauer-Walser AG decided to celebrate a family day / open day for employees with their families.
Food and drink was be provided ….
A sumptuous cold-hot buffet, a barbecue area with
a selection of meat and sausages
and a well-prepared lorry with beverages was available.
Coffee and cake specialties were served in a separate tent. They were brought by our employees themselves. Here again the warmest thanks for the 40 very delicious cakes.
All employees had the opportunity to show your
family their workplace and the entire company all day. The interest was amazing and the resonance was huge.
The large number of machines and equipment impressed all visitors during their tour
cross the buildings.
In the beautiful weather the prepared attractions for the numerous kids were much used. Two bouncy castles, a stand for cans throwing and faces to make-up. In a photo automatic box (with all sorts of props) were recorded a lot of fun photos. The guests could take the pictures home. The DRK was on site with a rescue vehicle and regular emergency rescue exercises were carried out for information purposes.
On Friday, 24th February 2017, we had a visit of councillor Karl Röckinger and Mayor Steffen Bochinger. Karlheinz Karner (CEO) and Horst Bittigkoffer (Chairman of the Supervisory Board) asked for a tour through our company.

For the third year in succession we visited the Montessori children's centre in Pforzheim in the pre-Christmas season to make a donation.
The sponsorship gives us the opportunity to directly support this project run by the Lebenshilfe charitable organisation instead of giving the usual Christmas presents to customers and suppliers. It always gives us great pleasure to observe how committed the staff of the children's centre are in looking after the needs of the children, which especially in these difficult social times is not always easy to do.
As well as providing monetary support, however, we are also happy that our apprentices have volunteered to do some work in the children's centre next spring.
We are expanding for you
In order to take increased long-term production and quality requirements into account, in June 2016 the construction of a new building extension to expand the company was started.
This measure will give the company more than 1,500 m² of additional production space. This will improve the organisation of production processes, quality of the products, the working atmosphere and create space for new products.
The move to the new, generously proportioned production space and office rooms including a training room is planned for December 2016 / January 2017.
Safeguarding the future
On Wednesday, October 26, 2016, the apprenticeship day for the district of the westen Enzkreis took place in the Kulturhalle facility in the town of Remchingen-Wilferdingen. And this was very successful.
At this event young people and their parents have the opportunity to directly inform themselves at regional companies about apprenticeships. Discussions took place with many interested young people due to the fact that in 2017 the Bauer-Walser AG company will have some apprenticeship positions available for a process mechanic and metal assayer.
A number of politicians from the region also used the opportunity to take a look at the companies and obtain feedback in personal discussions.
