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.
* Locations in 36 countries and partners in another 80 countries

* Between 1500 and 2500 new products every year
We will continue to invest in expansion for the coming years.
The opportunities are there thanks to modern materials!
