As a company for iron and sheet metal construction, Gräbener Pressensysteme was entered in the commercial register in Siegen on October 6, 1921. 100 years later, the company enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide, especially as a specialist for knuckle-joint and coin minting presses. “We are proud of our long history,” says Managing Director Martin Stahlschmidt. “That vast experience goes into every one of our client projects.”
After its foundation by Theodor Gräbener, the company initially manufactured a wide variety of structures such as pipelines, bridges or steam and pressure boilers. During the Second World War, “Gräbener & Comp.” mainly manufactures transport boilers for the railways. In the 1950s, the sons Theo and Hermann Gräbener added eccentric and knuckle-joint presses to their product portfolio.
In 1974, the company enters the production of large-diameter pipes. In contrast, Dr. Theodor Gräbener, the grandson of the company’s founder, discontinued the production of boilers six years later. In 1985 the company was divided into Theodor Gräbener Großrohr and Theodor Gräbener Pressensysteme. This part was finally taken over by Schuler in 1988.
With the new owner, Gräbener Pressensysteme gained access to a worldwide sales and service network. At the same time, the company managed to maintain its independence and regularly came up with groundbreaking innovations in toggle technology. Gräbener supplies its highly productive coin and medal minting presses to institutions all over the world.
“My thanks go not only to our business partners, but especially to our employees,” emphasizes Managing Director Martin Stahlschmidt. “Without them, Gräbener Press Systems would not be what we are today. With their high level of commitment, we will overcome current and also future challenges in order to always offer our customers the best solution.”
