Open house on 25th September

On Sunday, 25th September, we celebrated our 25th anniversary and success story with an open house. At metron eging in Grafenauer Str. 16+18 all interested parties were able to take a look behind the scenes from 10 am to 6 pm and experience how a trade fair stand and everything that goes with it is created.

There was plenty of action and a great supporting program.

We thank you for your numerous attendance at our open day and are looking forward to our next meeting.


metron eging GmbH wants to additionally rely on wind power

The green party member of the state parliament Mr. Toni Schuberl visited us and informed himself about our current projects. Our managing directors Matthias and Christian Kainz reported on the plan to erect a small wind turbine at the plant. More than a quarter of the company’s energy needs are already covered by photovoltaic systems. Now the wind turbine is to have a complementary effect, even if only on a small scale.

Mr. Schuberl welcomed the initiative and lamented the state government’s policy of obstruction so far. “If all larger companies would try to produce as much of the energy they need themselves with their own plants, we would already have made a huge step in the energy transition”. In addition, the company’s own electricity would be less affected by fluctuations in energy prices.

Shuttle service for employees

We introduced a free shuttle service for our employees to and from work.
Around the company site in Eging, employees are offered carpools in almost all directions.

The employee buses were introduced as a measure against high fuel prices in order to support our employees. Though, we also noticed other positive effects such as team building, sustainability and environmental protection. Moreover, it’s a great opportunity for trainees without a driver’s license to be mobile for work.

metron eging GmbH celebrates 25 years

Breaking new ground with bold ideas. Turning visions into reality whilst remaining down to earth. Seeing companies, customers, agencies, architects, employees as partners and friends. This was our motivation when we set out with metron in 1997 to offer innovative, holistic solutions in trade fair construction.

Everything from a single source: from carpenters, locksmiths and electricians to assembly. Made in Eging am See, for customers all over the world. It’s hard to believe but today we are already able to look back on 25 years of company history. The guarantors of this success are our unshakeable values of fairness and flexibility as well as the demand for the highest quality standards. We are pleased that we have been able to master this path so successfully as a family business. We have also emerged stronger from the pandemic, which naturally hit us hard as a globally active trade show manufacturer. Thanks to reliable partners and our own drive to make the best of every situation.

Our company name metron comes from the Greek and means “measure”. In this sense: Let us continue to measure up over the next 25 years and let us live our visions together!


Corona test stations | Corona vaccination bus | Corona vaccination center

Together with the IMS Rettungsdienst GmbH, we equipped several test stations (Passau-Straubing-Cham-Freyung) in 2020. At the turn of the year and at the start of Corona vaccinations, we converted vaccination buses and expanded vaccination centers. You can find the articles in the Passauer Neue Presse here.


metron eging GmbH welcomes new trainees in 2020

Five new trainees (Verena Höller, Tobias Gottal, Nico Stefos, Sandro Winter [not in the photo], Marcus Huber) started their company training with metron eging GmbH on 1st September 2020 in the professions office communications clerk, construction mechanic,

IT specialist for system integration, warehouse logistics specialist and technical product designer. On the very first day they received an extensive company presentation from our trainer Mr. Claus Pflie as well as  a company tour and they also got to know the departmental managers. After being welcomed by the management Christian and Matthias Kainz and a safety briefing, they were “released” to their departments. The next day all trainees and their instructors put their climbing skills to the test in the climbing forest Waldkirchen according to company tradition.

A total of 18 trainees are now working for metron eging. We wish all of them joy and success during their time with us.


ISO Certificates

In August 2020 we were able to complete a successful monitoring audit for the standards DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and 45001:2018 at the main location in Eging.


China Award

We were also able to complete the rating grade AAA (triple A) in China. This result counts as the highest rating result that can be awarded, whereby ability, quality and creditworthiness are checked.

We are pleased with the result and would like to extend our warmest congratulations to our colleagues in China!


Coronavirus COVID-19

We, company metron eging GmbH, want to submit our comment to the current economic situation.

Due to various last-minute cancellations/postponements of fairs and events our product planning is turned upside down and is no longer feasible as originally intended. This does not only affect upcoming activities but likewise the whole year-round event calendar. We basically have to assume that the whole order situation will be postponed to a later date or in the worst case we have to face a general decrease in orders for the fiscal year 2020.

With considerable organizational effort, a large part of our external production activities were scaled back significantly in order to utilize our own in-house production. This adversely affects the local companies with whom we have a trustful cooperation for 20 years now and which we attach great importance to. However, our primary aim is to ensure the safety of our employees and to secure the production site at the headquarters in Eging. Based on the measures taken, we are able to offer our employees secured employment and safeguard the current economic situation of metron eging GmbH.

We, company metron eging GmbH, hope that we can count on the support of the federal government for the sake of the whole region, the affected companies and the infrastructure.
We consider measures for securing liquidity and tax breaks appropriate in order to protect the assets, finances and earnings of the local companies and to safeguard employment.

We wish you good health and all the best,
The Executive Management of metron eging GmbH
