Albrecht Bäumer - a company history

Four generations, one history: join us on a journey into the past of Albrecht Bäumer GmbH & Co. KG and accompany us into the future!


How it all began at Bäumer

For more than half a century, we have been pioneers in the field of special machines for processing polyurethane foams. We are known and appreciated all over the world - for advanced products and service of excellent quality. How did we get this far? It all began with Albrecht Bäumer...

The Bäumer company was founded in 1919 in Wuppertal by Albrecht Bäumer Senior as a small mechanical workshop. After being destroyed in the Second World War, the company was then rebuilt in 1946 in Bäumer's home town of Freudenberg.

In 1949, Albrecht Bäumer's son-in-law Hans Günther Schuster joined the company - and within a short space of time, he converted the entire production process. Instead of simple cutting machines for the clothing industry, from then on Bäumer manufactured special machines for the transportation, storage and processing of foams and similar materials.

A success story that we are continuing to write together.
