An eventful history, a dynamic present and a clear direction for the future.
GRASS was formed more than 65 years ago. The history of the Mepla factory goes further back still, the company having manufactured furniture fittings in Germany as early as 1929. A little more than ten years ago, the Mepla works merged with Alfit AG from Götzis/Austria, which had been formed in 1976. Both companies were acquired by the international Würth group in the nineties, and since 2004 GRASS also belongs to the Würth group.
Finally, 2007 was the year in which the new GRASS group was born, emerging from the merger of Mepla-Alfit and GRASS. This was the foundation of a worldwide company with exciting products in the furniture market, offering its customers innovative technology, top quality and state-of-the-art design.
