The story of igus® begins on 15th October 1964 with Günter Blase in a double garage in Cologne-Mülheim.
For the first twenty years, we worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components.
In 1983 Frank Blase starts our own product lines Energy Chain Systems® and polymer bearings as well as a network of sales engineers.
Between 1985 and 2016, we grew from 40 to more than 2950 igus® employees, distributed the world over.
We will continue to invest in expansion for the coming years.
The opportunities are there thanks to modern materials!
igus® was founded in 1964
locations in 35 countries and partners in another 80 countries
Currently approx. 2950 employees worldwide
Between 1500 and 2500 new products every year
We have an open system everyone can directly contact anyone else, we all work at identical desks, have the same uniform, eat the same food at our cafeteria and go to the same toilets.
We constantly engage in further training in the area of products, software programs, foreign languages, company seminars, group courses, technical seminars for business personnel and much more.
Because of current order peaks our lead-time will increase temporarily to 6-12 working days for e-chain systems®. We are working intensively on a fast improvement.
