The proprietors of ystral are the three brothers David, George and Peter Manke. They took over the company in 2005, having already spent the previous seven years as the managing directors.
Since 2005 the turnover has grown from 10 to 42 million euros (2018). A solid, organic growth that is reflected in the increase in employee numbers from 80 to 270 (2018).
Alongside the headquarters in Ballrechten-Dottingen near the French and Swiss borders, branches have been established in Singapore (2011), Bangalore (India, 2013) and Beijing (China, 2018). Strong international demand is the reason for this, and so we have followed our customers to Asia, where the potential on this continent is unimaginably large. So far the export quota of our turnover is 60% (2018).
In the year 2019 the management was extended by Karl Prem as commercial managing director.
