The story of igus® begins on 15th October 1964 with Günter Blase in a double garage in Cologne-Mülheim.
For the first twenty years, we worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components.
In 1983 Frank Blase starts our own product lines Energy Chain Systems® and polymer bearings as well as a network of sales engineers.
Between 1985 and 2015, we grew from 40 to more than 2700 igus® employees, distributed the world over. We will continue to invest in expansion for the coming years.The opportunities are there thanks to modern materials!
