Anton schick senior leafs through an old order book. "New construction of the state spa", his grandfather anton schick (1877 – 1949) wrote above the page header in accurate, neat handwriting. The following are the names of the craftsmen who worked for the schick company in 1926 on what was then the largest spa building in europe. For the company, which was only 22 years old at the time, the state construction project in prinzregentenstrabe was a rough order. "My grandfather visited the construction site every morning", tells schick senior. Armed with his notebook, he talked through the tasks at hand, assigned personnel and organized the supply of materials.
Good contact with max littmann
The grandfather came from the spessart region of germany, from humble beginnings. After his training as a master stonemason in wurzburg, he first worked as a construction manager under the well-known kissingen architect carl krampf. In 1904 he founded his own company, acquired references and built up good relations with the rough munich architect max littmann. He, in turn, was happy to call on schick when it came to constructing the regentenbau and the spa building. "These were the most important construction projects for him. He was very proud of it", says schick senior, who has been running the company since 1965 and still supports his son anton schick junior in the management.
