Dettingen/Erms (euro adhoc) - Dettingen/Erms, Runkel (Germany) April 15, 2007 +++  On Saturday April 14, 2007, one of the production halls at the ElringKlinger production site Runkel/Germany caught fire. This production hall housed parts of the production facilities for cylinder-head gaskets. The other production areas at the Runkel plant were not affected by the fire.

Investigations as regards the cause of the fire have not yet been concluded. It is assumed that the fire was caused by a short circuit.

Due the damages, the hall has to be reconstructed from scratch. According to first estimates the amount of damages is assumed at approximately EUR 15 mn. There is comprehensive insurance coverage. There were no personal injuries.

ElringKlinger is convinced that there will be no supply and delivery failures as the international production network of ElringKlinger Group ensures that the individual products can be manufactured in the identical high-end quality at different production sites of the group.
