35 years of Brühl Safety GmbH - certainly a success story!

2018, Brühl Safety GmbH looks back on 35 years of company history. In-depth know-how, exceptional innovation and continuous growth have made the success of the past years a reality.

How it all started...

On April 15, 1983, Hans Georg Brühl began his professional career as a master locksmith, and quickly made a noise in this world on account of the word-of-mouth propaganda in the Siegerland. He soon expanded his business, received more and more orders from outside the region and focused his activities on the growing market of safety grids and safety devices.

In 1985, his twin brother Heinrich Brühl joined the company and Hans Georg and Heinrich Brühl GbR was founded. The brothers made breakthroughs in the market for high-quality safety fence systems. On May 1, 1991, Hans Georg Brühl GmbH was founded with 16 permanent employees. The number of employees grew steadily, and by the end of 2016 had more than tenfold.

On January 15, 2017, the company was renamed Brühl Safety GmbH due to its international orientation. To this day the brothers Hans-Georg and Heinrich Brühl are sole shareholders and lead the company's fortunes together with Kai Wienecke, who was appointed as the third managing director on January 1, 2017.

A company on the growth track...

With high-quality products and the development of a flexible safety fence system, the sales and the number of employees increased rapidly and the spatial capacities at the original location in Netphen-Dreis-Tiefenbach were soon exhausted. In 1996, for example, the company relocated to the premises in Netphen-Deuz, to meet the growing requirements. A shop floor was built here, and an office building was built in 1998, which had to be extended in 2002 due to a growing number of employees.

The years 1997 and 1998 were characterized by extraordinary economic success - Hans Georg and Heinrich Brühl used this for further investments and set the course for the future, among other things, with the acquisition of a powder coating plant. In 2006, the production area was doubled by an extension to the production floor, which also reached its capacity limit.

An important milestone in the development of the company was also the 2007 certification of quality management from BRÜHL according to DIN EN ISO 9001 in order to meet the increased requirements at national and international level. 2008, the 25th anniversary of the company became the most successful year in the history of the company so far. For the first time, sales exceeded the 15 million Euro limit.

Prepared for future challanges...

The credo at BRÜHL is always to put customers and their needs at the forefront and to invest continuously in partnership. A help tool for this is the BRÜHL complete product catalogue, which was introduced in 2010 and in the meantime reissued, as a handbook for machine and plant installation to better inform and integrate the customer into all questions concerning the safety equipment for machine and plant installation.

At the Automatica 2012 the BRÜHL Safety-Fence-Designer was launched, an innovative fence planning tool from the Brühl company, enabling designers to integrate individual parts of the Brühl products directly into their plant layouts, thereby designing machine systems from a single source. The award of the seal of approval "Safer with  System" in February 2011, awarded by the Berufsgenossenschaft Holz & Metall (BGHM) to companies which can be certified as a systematic and effective occupational safety, is an example of BRÜHL's ongoing internal development.
