The founding of the company took place in the 70s, when Andrej Češarek established a metal turning workshop in his garage. At first, he worked on his own, but slowly started to build a team. Throughout the years, the small workshop was perfecting their metalworking processes and 20 years ago expanded its production to door fittings (door knobs, door handles, and other elements) for front doors, thus becoming a modern metalworking company with approximately 50 employees.
The foundation of the company Griffing, d. o. o.
As early as 1999, a small team in the workshop created its first samples of door handles. Through cooperation and common developmental potential, their quality was recognised by large leading companies that produce front doors. In 2010, Andrej Češarek passed on the technical leadership to his son Urban Češarek, who is an engineer. That same year, he and his wife Nataša Češarek founded the company Griffing, d. o. o., thus continuing the tradition of a family-owned company.
From a small workshop to a renowned expert
During all of these years, in addition to CNC treatment and production of turned and milled parts for the pharmaceutical, mechanical engineering, and automotive industries, the Griffing company continued to produce door fittings from stainless steel, such as door handles, door knobs, and other decorative elements. The company keeps growing through continuous improvements and visionary thinking. By investing in technology, optimisation, modernisation, and a professional attitude, the customer network expanded and Griffing’s development grew. Better machines and the engineering knowledge of a highly-trained team contribute to its competitive edge in metal working and production of door fittings, whereas Griffing is renowned in the market as an expert, known for technological excellence and perfect product design.
