Our experience helps you!

The company AST®-Beschichtungstechnik GmbH was founded on 1st June 1990 by Reiner Weidinger in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany. As demand for its products increased, in 1992 this limited company moved to Rot am See. In 2006, a brand-new building was constructed there, to bring together all of the company’s departments. Today we are able to offer our customers the matching solution for each of their applications – cost-effectively and efficiently. Our many years of experience in the sector have thus already become beneficial to you.
