History

How did it all begin and what have been the significant milestones in the history of our company, which now goes back 30 years?

We are very grateful for the growth which we have experienced so far and are aware that every employee, every customer and every other business partner has made a key contribution to this.

We believe that a great deal can be learned about the future by taking a close look at the past. We are therefore sure that we have already laid a number of foundation stones for further success and look forward to all the things which lie before us and will be forever embedded in the history of our company as part of our past at some time or other. However, until you can read these things on this page, let us first of all take you on a journey through the current history of our company, so that you can find out how we became the company we are today.
