Perrot Today

The Perrot House situated on the Bischofstraße in Calw
Heinrich Immanuel Perrot (*22.10.1929) obtained his apprenticeship credentials at the PERROT firm's Water Sprinkler Division, after which he completed his engineering studies at the State School of Engineering at Esslingen. In 1952, he began his tenure at his father's clockworks. In 1959, he decided to take on the production of electric bellringing technology. Shortly after that, the firm started to research into the production of fully electrical and lightweight tower clock technology. However, these new activities created, in the early 1960s, a need for larger production premises. Heinrich I. Perrot had no choice but to expand with the building of a new factory complex in the suburb of Calw-Heumaden. Consequently, sales territories were widened and export markets were opened up. For example, a new musical Calendar Clock was designed and produced for a shopping mall in Dublin (Ireland). This breakthrough marked the beginning of a new era for the PERROT firm and the Calendar Clock became its prize showpiece.
