Günter Blase began igus® back on 15th October 1964 in a double garage in Cologne. For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components. However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic Energy Chain Systems® and injection moulded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies.
Between 1985 and 2016, igus® has grown from 40 to more than 2950 employees distributed between the head office in Germany and 26 subsidiary companies around the world. igus® also has representative partners in another 35 other countries. igus® will continue to invest in expansion in the coming years, thanks to the opportunities for growth provided by modern materials.
