In terms of years, we have grown older and certainly come a long way
since 1928 when KLÖPPER was established as an engineering company
in Dortmund. Despite our age, we have kept up with the times, developed
a more modern face and made technological progress our watchword.
The four cornerstones of the group are:
Progress and success are by no means goals which can be achieved without
effort. With responsible, dynamic entrepreneurs at the helm, our medium-
sized group has steered a steady course towards a secure future, while
still remaining faithful to its home port. We have always been able to
rely on a trusty crew to support our endeavours.
Step by step, production capacity has been extended, processes modernized and horizons widened. Advanced solutions based on microelectronics, sensors, laser technology and software functions have been incorporated into production processes. Modern test methods ensure a high level of quality assurance.
High quality is now accompanied by short lead times and installation techniques. The market-orientated product range was extended beyond the borders of Germany to face European and worldwide competition. The KLÖPPER group has a strong technological base. Of the staff of over 200 on the group payroll, almost a quarter are engineers. Customized systems and products tailored to clients' requirements play a predominant role. Advanced computer-aided technologies are becoming increasingly important, together with the new generation of applications software.
Close cooperation with clients and suppliers and the university, colleges and research institutes located in the immediate vicinity of the group's headquarters have brought tangible benefits in terms of practical technology transfer, facilitating solutions to technical problems.
