Values & Tradition

Transformation is in our DNA. We have changed continuously, from a small hardware store in the heart of Europe to a global metal processing specialist. And throughout this, we always had the courage to try new things, the ambition to be the best, and the respect to work with each other on an equal footing.

Our Values

Our Tradition

1876 was an eventful year. Nikolaus Otto fired up his first four-stroke engine. Mark Twain published The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. And in Bielefeld, a 23-year-old man acquired a hardware store. And thereby laid the foundation stone for our over 140-year company history.
