SUCCESS THROUGH INNOVATION - OUR HISTORY

From the original founding of our company in 1979, Reinhard Weber believed that innovation combined with technical excellence would be the key to success. And he was proved right – for within a short time, the newly founded company was able to enjoy a flourishing inflow of projects and orders. Today, innovative power and technical excellence remain our basis for success and our key to the future.
