About igus® - plastics for longer life®

Günter Blase began igus® back on 15th October 1964 in a double garage in Cologne. For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components. However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic cable carriers and injection molded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies. Between 1985 and 2022, igus® grew from 40 to more than 4,500 employees distributed between the head office in Germany and 35 subsidiary companies around the world. igus® also has representative partners in more than 35 other countries. igus® will continue to invest in expansion in the coming years, thanks to the opportunities for growth provided by modern materials.

Corporate Culture (Our Values)

Our solar system is at the heart of our culture. No, we're not talking about the planetary system here. The igus solar system is an organisational chart that reflects our thoughts and actions. In the middle is the customer, who is as important to us as the sun is to the earth, which provides light, heat and energy — just as the customer gives us wishes, incentives, money. Our colleagues and teams live and create around the customer, who take up their requirements and find the right solutions to their problems, often innovations. The success of our people then comes from the success of our customers. As a company, it is our job to provide our colleagues with the means and atmosphere in which they enjoy working.
