Our innovations

E-Charging Station

One public and 7 other company-owned E-Charging Stations are available at FLEXIVA‘s production hall in Weissbach.
The location in Dittersdorf also offers 2 company-owned E-Charging Stations.
All FLEXIVA employees can currently charge their E-Cars for FREE during their working hours.


Energy efficiency is the focus

With the construction of the 2452 m² production hall, we created significantly more space for modern offices and production areas. In addition to optimized production processes, we focus on the efficient use of energy at FLEXIVA. For this reason, we got a 132kW photovoltaic system installed on the roof of the hall.


Cooling in summer and heating in winter is done with our reversible heat pump. This is supplied with electricity by our wind turbine, among other things.

Butterfly meadow

"Saxony is in bloom" is an initiative of the Saxon state parliament. With insect-friendly management, the meadow serves as a habitat for many insect species.
FLEXIVA supports this project with its meadow behind the production hall in Weissbach.

It is important to us to speak the customer‘s language.

For the achievement of shared goals, we have set ourselves the following objectives:

  • Development of solutions and concepts individually according to customer and market requirements, according to the current state of the art
  • Realization of our services with qualified and motivated employees using the latest machines and technologies
  • Selection of suppliers and contractors under the premise of reliable and long-term cooperation

The history of FLEXIVA

3 friends

It all began in January 1990. Three young engineers didn't want to wait any longer for the "blossoming landscape" and resigned from their VEB combine in Chemnitz. An unbelievable process by GDR standards, especially in the uncertain times at the time. The shortage economy helped to fill the order books very quickly. The main tasks were the development and implementation of special solutions using programmable logic controllers.

The wandering years

The situation changed abruptly with monetary union. All orders were cancelled, there were no new ones. So all three decided to try their luck in the old federal states. One goal was to bring the good theoretical knowledge up to date. This worked very well and in mid-1991 all three met in Markgröningen near Stuttgart in what was then the electrical production facility at DÜRR®.

FLEXIVA was born

The manager at the time was enthusiastic about the commitment, diligence and skill of the engineers. More employees were hired, who then all worked in Markgroningen. In a few months there were around 15 employees and the forerunner of FLEXIVA, msr-soft GmbH, was launched.

FLEXIVA is growing up

In 1998 the management decided to buy an old hosiery factory in the same place. The software and robot programming area was established. In 2015, the decision was made to build a new energy-efficient production hall in Amtsberg / Weißbach. Today FLEXIVA employs over 90 people and also has a branch in Darmstadt.
