We guarantee a higher level of safety at work

We can say this with confidence: it is the result of the thousands of locking systems we have installed in modern, fully automatic production lines in a number of different industries.

The sophisticated, tried-and-tested design of our locking units, used primarily in the automobile industry, proves itself day after day, offering absolute security for operating personnel.

The practical construction and robust design of each and every component fulfil industry requirements, meaning our customers can trust our products implicitly.

This has been our philosophy since our company was founded in 1939, and we continue to implement it sustainably in our work today.
