Founder Karl Baumann

Competence for over 100 years

Founder and pioneer Karl Baumann put in 1910 in Waldprechtsweier the foundation for our current business.

Were initially only steel shavings produced, the range of products could soon be expanded with the steel wool. Due to the constant expansion of the company’s production in 1945 moved to Malsch. Meanwhile, all four sons Charles, Albert, Friedebert and Gottfried had worked for the company. In 1965 started the construction of a production hall in Waldprechtsweier. Since 1967, the company is active again at the original founding place.
