Automation as a contribution to the phase-out of coal


SPANGLER – the Plus of use of resources.

In order to achieve the generally defined goal of phasing out coal and due to the amendment of the sewage sludge regulation, the combustion of sewage sludge instead of coal as a fuel is a good alternative. For this reason, two belt dryers with a yearly capacity of 80.000 tons were installed at a plant of an energy provider for increase of capacity. SPANGLER Automation planned, produced and programmed the automation technology on behalf of HUBER SE Berching.

13.12.2019 Growing together and preparing for the future


Töging 13.12.2019; At this year’s Christmas party Managing Director Hannelore Spangler-Schäfer found motivating words for the now 150 employees and made an emotional and appreciative speech for the farewell of Managing Director and her brother Helmut Graspointner.

The future depends on what you do today – Mahatma Gandhi. With this thought, the management of SPANGLER Automation summed up the changes which are currently taking place and which will form the company in the upcoming years. ‘In good times we invest in future-proof measures‘, Hannelore Spangler-Schäfer said. Taking the comprehensive digitalisation of the process and task fields into consideration, like for example the automated warehouse lift in the production or the production and administration building that is under construction at the moment. This ‘Courage for the future’ needs trustworthy and loyal employees, who support these changes. It was therefore all the more a pleasure for her to recognize many employees for their many years with the company. Christian Brandmüller, Josef Schmid and Reinhard Weigl were honoured for 25 years, Anton Höcker, Angelika Leibold, Rainer Meier and Peter Wild for 20 years. Frank Prochnow was thanked for 15 years, as well as Renate Schuderer, Fabian Rackl and Renate Hirsch for 10 years.

Good cohesion

After the honor of the celebrants the Managing Director underlined once again her appreciation for the work performed and the commitment of the whole team as well as the good cohesion.

A particularly large number of prizes were awarded this year for the innovation management for which employees may submit their ideas for improvements. In total nine award winners were honoured for the first three prizes. Reinhard Weigl was awarded with the prize for the best improvement proposal in 2019.

Farewell to retirement

The focus of this afternoon was the farewell to Managing Director Helmut Graspointner, who was with Spangler from the very beginning and will start his well-deserved retirement. The employees did not miss the chance to personally wish him all the best and – represented by the long-term employees Martina Glas and Hubert Rackl – presented some gifts, among them a picture of the company building, painted on a Jura stone. But that was not enough. Christina Deyerler, who has also been working at SPANGLER for many years, handed over probably the most personal gift: anecdotes, memories and wishes in a photo book, collected by all employees. Visibly moved, Helmut Graspointner was recognized for his efforts with long applause.

After the official part the year-end party’s informal and festive get-together started. The affectionately decorated Christmas lounge of the restaurant Freihart in Mallerstetten got all participants in mood for Christmas – with a good mood, mulled wine and cookies.

04.09.2019 The brave way to become experts

SPANGLER Automation PM Ausbildungsstart 2019

At the beginning of September seven young people started their apprenticeship at SPANGLER. An exciting programme with interesting tasks will await them in the coming weeks.

With seven new apprentices – six electricians and one office clerk – the apprenticeship staff at SPANGLER Automation in Töging again has grown strongly. In total the number of apprentices is constantly nearly 20% of the employees. In order to facilitate the future electricians the start in their professional life SPANGLER relies on a successful concept, the intensive training. Here the students learn within 6 weeks the structures and processes of the activities in a compressed form and can make their first attempts with controls themselves without time pressure. A competent training team is at their side with advice and support during this time. The office clerk directly starts in her first department. Nevertheless, she as well is involved in many issues in the intensive training in order to get an overview of the company.

„Power on your future“

SPANGLER also presents itself as an attractive employer in other respects. A new brochure was launched under the titel „Power on your future,“ which describes the advantages of a medium-sized family business. The internet presence as well was adapted to the new ‘Generation Smartphone’. ‘The new appearance is necessary in order to pay the attention to our company already now to future experts’, training manager Teresa Wittmann describes the motivation.

The initial excitement has subsided

For the new apprentices the day started with a welcome by managing director Hannelore Spangler-Schäfer. Her key massage was clear: ‚Apprenticeship is still a brave decision with future’. The future specialists learn within the coming three and a half years which further training possibilities they have at Spangler and which direction fit most. Spangler supports them by deploying them in different departments. Besides the profound training the electricians are now real future experts. Programming of control units is part of the fields of expertise as well as virtual start-up. The apprenticeship team made a varied programme for the first day. Today‘s apprentices are firmly scheduled at Spangler as future experts.


Seven young people had a brave start in the working life.
