Milestones in the company’s history

From the Black Forest to the wide world - this is probably the best way to summarise the last decades. Starting from our founding location in Wieden in the Black Forest, we have made an international name for ourselves and have consistently expanded our presence. We now have two locations in Germany, several subsidiaries abroad and competent representatives in all other relevant countries of the world. This means that we are always close to our customers and can provide advice and support on site.
