With their son, the engineer Hartmut Schramm, a new era began in 1964, which saw a consistent modernization of the production process together with further developments of sliding doors, gate fittings and multi-lane railways. These lone-rail systems can still be found today as semi or fully automated variants in many production facilities, such as painting lines in window and door construction.
Together with his wife Ursel, Hartmut Schramm successfully navigated the company through the turbulent 80s, when “presumed dead” sliding door fittings experienced a true renaissance. Product quality was significantly improved by the introduction of deep groove ball bearings and many other inventions.
This consistent commitment to improvement along with inventive solutions, brought the Hermann Francksen company fame and recognition, well beyond the borders of Germany.
