For more than 25 years, 3ks has stood for outstanding technical performance, innovation, quality and reliability.
- Soffit joint profiles
- A profile-based sealing system for the installation of windows and doors
- Expansion joints for plastering and thermal insulation systems
The development and production of filigree garden design elements under the arcadia® own brand is a second mainstay.
The company was founded by Alfred Beer and Klaus Schall in Simbach in 1994 under the name of BeScha Baustoffhandels GmbH. Renamed to 3ks profile gmbh on 01/01/2002 and relocated to Geisenhausen. Owing to increasing market requirements and storage capacities, it was necessary to find an option for combining the administration and storage under one roof. 3ks found an appropriately sized and suitable property and has once again been located in Simbach, at a new address, since 01/03/2004.
Klaus Schall has been the sole owner and Managing Director of the company since 01/07/2012.
