Lithofin globally introduces a new design and optimises international trade fair appearances
The office space was significantly expanded with a new building to create space for future expansion. In the new building, customer service, application technology, sales and marketing are located in close proximity to each other. Spacious seminar rooms for training courses and other customer events were created on the ground floor.
In order to take account of internationalisation, the company is renamed Lithofin AG.
In 2003, his son Garvin Stingel joined the management team and continues the internationalization process that began in 1978. Based on the principles of quality and service, the LITHOFIN brand is now active in more than 25 countries worldwide.
The first company in the industry to be certified according to DIN ISO 9001
Service and quality have been the focus of attention since the very beginning and are now officially audited and certified by external auditors.
Lithofin products get the design that is still typical today: the Lithofin corner
For a better overview, each product line has its own colour
Heinz-Peter Stingel combined the products under one brand name in 1979. This is made up of the Greek lithos (=the stone) and the English word finish: LITHOFIN.
The product range is offered in Austria, Switzerland and Greece.
After completing his studies in chemistry, Heinz-Peter Stingel took over his parents' business in 1974. He sharpened the product profiles and focused on ceramics, natural stone and artificial stone.
The demand within Germany increased rapidly and the foundation stone of the family business was laid. Soon the company moved to larger premises, to the present company premises in Wendlingen. There the development of an extensive product range began, which still inspires the customers today.
In 1953, Glaubrecht Stingel began producing a new type of cleaner in the idyllic town of Esslingen: ST57 KUKÜ.
