A success story to be continued

Company history is much more than just a pretty photo on the wall. The almost 70-year history of BREYER is the history of a dynamic company, defined by its organisation, its philosophy and its culture. 

This means constantly learning new skills and a dedication to self-improvement. This special form of internal cooperation helps us to meet the challenges of an ever-changing market, both now and in the future. This is an understanding that has not only contributed to enormous growth, but which time and time again inspires successful cooperation with the customer. 
Today, with around 250 employees in more than 13,000 square meters of production hall, we develop and manufacture cutting edge extrusion technology for the world market. 
The spirit and message of our company founder, Anton Breyer, is still with us and just as strong as ever:
providing a service to our customers is the basis for all our activities.
