As enthusiastic about technology as ever
Last year, our family-owned company celebrated its 70th anniversary. Seven decades in which we have repeatedly led the market with a high level of innovation. 70 years in which the success of our customers has always been our top priority.
In 1956, Otto Bihler developed the world's first automatic stamping and forming machine. In 1987, we presented the world's first software for designing stamping and forming tools. At the turn of the millennium, the BIMERIC servo-controlled forming system revolutionized the production of metal parts from strip and wire material. In 2019, we received the Brose Innovation Award for a particularly material-efficient automation solution for waterproof electric motor housings. And with our latest modular, standardized machine and tool technology and our digital services, we are ideally positioned for future tasks.
We are already looking forward to continuing our partnership with you.
