History of a company which offers vocational training

The foundry has existed for over 80 years. After first being privately run, it became a state-run enterprise under the German Democratic Republic in 1972. After reunification, the foundry manager disassociated the company from the former East German Trust Agency. He rebuilt the company and continued the long foundry tradition still in operation today.

In 2000, LMG Aue moved into the new company premises in the Aue-Alberoda industrial zone.
