BEHRINGER GMBH Presentation
History BEHRINGER GmbH was founded in 1919 by August Behringer as a mechanical workshop. After World War II, the company developed and produced its first hacksawing machine. In 1952, it commissioned the first in-house iron foundry to feed its ever expanding saw production. Since development of the first Behringer bandsawing machine in 1977, and after taking over circular sawing specialist EISELE in the year 2000, BEHRINGER GmbH has been one of the few complete suppliers in the sawing technology market. Today BEHRINGER is an owner-managed medium-sized family firm under its third generation of family management. Our corporate ethos is based on traditional values, solid technological competence and a high vertical depth of production. We are a company oriented towards the long-term, and we promote a culture of cooperative partnership with our customers and suppliers. What drives us forward as a competence and technology leader in the field of bandsaws and circular saws is our passion for the sawing process. We are one of a very small number of complete suppliers in the sawing technology market. Its product range spans from bandsawing and circular sawing machines through hacksaws to plants for steel construction. At the same time, we provide our customers with specialist expertise in the field of material handling. The second pillar of Behringer GmbH is its own in-house foundry. We supply some of the components for our own machine production, but our foundry is at work producing parts for our customers from the German mechanical engineering industry. From raw castings in grey or spheroidal graphite cast iron through to ready-to-mount components, we supply everything from a single source. The BEHRINGER Group is counted among one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-performance bandsaw and circular sawing technology. Working in cooperation with subsidiary Behringer Eisele in Weilheim/Teck and our French sister company Vernet Behringer based in Dijon, the Group is among the few complete suppliers operating in the marketplace. Behringer’s customers range across the whole of the metalworking and steel construction industry as well as the mechanical and plant engineering sector. Behringer sawing machines are also used by steel manufacturers and dealers, in smelting works and forging plants. Users whose manufacture requires the cutting of NF metals such as copper and aluminium also form part of our customer base. International presence Behringer GmbH is active both in national and international arena. It has been a regular exhibitor and participant at international conferences, trade fairs and events for many decades. Employing a workforce of some 400 around the world, the company exports to over 70 countries. Subsidiaries in Weilheim / Teck, the USA and France, and representations around the world ensure optimum customer support. Despite its international orientation, the company remains firmly tied to its current location.
