The igus® story begins on 15/10/1964 with the married couple Günter Blase and Margret Blase in a double garage in Cologne-Mülheim. For the first twenty years, igus® operated as a supplier to industry for sophisticated technical plastic components.
In 1983, son Frank Blase starts to concentrate on full products like E-ChainSystems® and plain bearings and establishes a separate marketing department. During the period 1985 to 2013, igus® grows from 40 to over 2150 igus® people spread all over the world. The next year igus® invests in expansion. The opportunities for innovative products have emerged - thanks to the modern plastics!
