Traditionally, the Nützel mill was a typical mill, a small water wheel in the local stream in the Upper Franconian Wiesenttal valley drove the millstones and processed wheat into wheat flour. The switch to malt production was accompanied by the founding of Nützel-Mühle GmbH by Matthias Nützel in 2007.

As the mill located there was bursting at the seams after a short time and there was no opportunity to expand, we quickly found a new, strategically well-located site in Weimar, Thuringia. Since summer 2020, we have been busy renovating and building new premises on our new company site in Nordstraße in Weimar. As a result, we are now gradually relocating the head office and the main part of production from Wiesenttal to Weimar.

Two existing halls have already been completely rebuilt, refurbished and equipped with the latest racking technology so that over 3,000 pallets can now be stored and retrieved fully automatically. When fully operational, our state-of-the-art bagging plant will be able to fill 100 to 150 tons of malt products per day.

We have retained the existing technology as far as possible and will continue to use it. The elevator in the silo building, built in 1973, still travels through the first 7 floors, but now with modern controls.
