About us

High quality for more than 100 years

In accordance with the motto "everything is possible", in 1919 we had already started manufacturing our special tools for difficult operations in underground mining. For this reason, quality, reliability and solution-oriented approaches have therefore always been our goal and the objective of all our tools. While special tailor-made solutions cannot be implemented by many standard tool manufacturers, there is no customer requirement that is too special for us.
This is what makes us a competent partner of the industry.

Innovation

Our formula for success over the past 100 years is based on our systematic continuous development and innovative strength. Therefore, we will continue to focus on progressive action and new ideas.

Efficiency

Our main target is to make our customers' processes as efficient as possible by simplifying the operating sequences and optimizing the results.

Communication

A working relationship based on trust is the recipe for a good cooperation. This is why we support open communication so as to deliver high quality results.
