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 2014, we grew from 40 to more than 2150 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!
