Four generations, one history

The roots of our company go back to 1919 when Albrecht Bäumer senior founded a small mechanical workshop in Wuppertal. After its destruction during the war, he rebuilt the company in his hometown of Freudenberg in 1946. 


Already in 1949, his son-in-law Hans Günther Schuster joined the company and reorganised the production in a short period of time. Instead of simple cutting machines for the clothing industry, henceforth the company Bäumer manufactured special machinery for transport, storage and converting of foams and similar materials. 

He who wants to reach the top must stand on firm ground - who wants to be in the lead needs backing.

Bäumer pioneers work in the range of special machines for processing of polyurethane foam for already more than half a century. Today we stand for excellent products with traditional high quality.
