In November 2004 ...

… our business was passed from the mother to her two sons Alexander and Christian – still located in Ziegelstraße in Göppingen. In 2008, we moved to the industrial park of neighboring Eislingen, where we now work on 5,000 square meters that became the new home for storing and production. At the same time, the company was renamed: Christian CARL Ing. GmbH became CARL GmbH. Alexander Plank and his team are responsible for sales, acquisition, and customer service, while his brother Christian and his team take care of manufacturing, production, purchasing, and development.

Among today’s fields of business are specialized distilleries for settlement distilleries and hobbyists. Along with them licensed distilleries with an output between 400 and 2,000 liters of alcohol per year (family-owned businesses who mostly market their products themselves), as well as large commercial distilleries (agricultural or fruit). Among the latter are many of our customers, such as Scheibel, Schladerer, Weis Freihof/Hämmerle, and Roner.

Our range of products comprises everything from a single still to a turnkey solution (mash preparation or grain storage, fermentation, distillery facility, alcohol storage and finishing). The aim is always to provide the highest possible distillate quality combined with individual design, best functionality, and reasonable energy-efficient concepts. Our close cooperation with research institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy ensure our company top position in the development of distillation technology.

The latest innovations in distillation are related to measurement and control technology, as well as to further automation. Along with that come sophisticated user friendliness, and we take into account all aspects of operational safety. The latter keep being improved in close cooperation with the technical service corporation TÜV Süd.

Our motto has always been form and function – meaning we blend esthetically ambitious design with distinctly conceived facilities, keeping in mind the customer’s specific requests. We first conceive it all using CAD, then create the items in our workshop with 25 employees, most of them coppersmiths who had already been with us as apprentices.

At our new location, we use the most modern production equipment. We are proud of the gigantic machining centers, such as grinding machines (up to vessel diameters of 2.5 meters), hammering robots, and automatic welding machines.

Personal relation with the customers are always very important for them as we also sell a piece of distillation philosophy along with our products. And it is no longer uncommon to find a CARL facility used by customers from very much up north, near the equator, just as right in the Swabian Jura. Today’s modern and international business life, as well as the excellent reputation of Made in Germany, are trends much welcomed by the company’s two owners.
