Tradition and innovation

Since our establishment in 1937 as a trading company for mining products in the Ruhr Valley we have had a strong relation to this region. We still have today, but our customers have evolved further – and so have we.

The number of different fasteners and fixings has increased. The demands on our services have become more complex. The fields our customers are active in have become more diverse. Accordingly, our scope of action has continuously expanded and meanwhile covers the entire European region.
