Continuous growth.

1986 Foundation of KONTRA Anlagentechnik GmbH in Meschede by the managing directors Martin Wagner and Hans-Günther Samland as well as Hans Hohmann and the Treurat GmbH (Ltd.).

1988 Hans-Günther Samland passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, Martin Wagner is now sole managing director.

1989 Kontra moved into its own, new premises in Rüthen as the rented hall in Meschede had meanwhile become too small.

1994 The production hall was extended for the first time.

2000 Second extension building. This time the production area – which had once again become too small – and the office space were expanded.

2010 Martin Wagner retired from the Management. Jörg Wagner and Frank Otto were appointed as new managing directors.

2016 Third extension building.
