The Appel family
It is not a casualty that the Family Appel is living in the area of Kirchheim/Teck since 30 years. This area has a tradition regarding laser-cutting, cutting and die-cutting, as more than 40 years ago, the first CO2-laser was built and also the first sample-makers (digital cutting tables) were produced. Today, important manufacturers of cutting machines (laser, water-jet, steel rule procesors, automatic bending machines, milling-machine, routers) and service companies are located in our area.
