RÖHRIGgranit® is planning an extension of the Gehrenberg quarry in Sonderbach by 6.2 hectares in a southerly direction. To this end, the company is expected to submit the necessary application for approval to the Darmstadt Regional Authority in spring 2019. In the event of a positive decision, stone extraction will then be carried out step by step in the new area. The distance to the residential area in Juhöhe will be at least 400 meters.
An expansion is necessary in order to continue production at today’s level in the future, to maintain the site in the long run, and thus to ensure a sustainable supply of raw materials. RÖHRIGgranit® employs 90 people, including currently four apprentices. RÖHRIGgranit® thus ensures around 200 jobs in the region. The family business is firmly rooted in the area and committed to the region.
