60 years of CEMO - An unusual success story

The success story behind CEMO began with grape vats and barrels made of glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). In Weinstadt, a wine region in Baden-Württemberg, Erhard Mödinger had the idea of replacing the wooden barrels, in which winegrowers and farmers stored and transported liquids, with lighter and more resistant containers made of GRP. Initially a two-man business, the company, which was then known as Chemo, soon became well-known and successful in Weinstadt and the surrounding area
