History and status

The wire rope manufacturer, Drahtseilwerk Hemer, was created by a merger of Bremer Drahtseilerei Lüling GmbH & Co. KG and a subsidiary of Künne GmbH & Co. KG in Hemer, Germany, where the company relocated in 1999 for strategic reasons. The combination of the existing, tried and tested plant with new technology proved to be the ideal basis for the development of an efficient, innovative wire rope factory.

As a member company of the Künne Group, we have access to the experience, expertise and capacity of the entire Group. One of the most modern wire-rope manufacturers, Künne, supplies us with high-quality wire, which forms the basis for our TAURUS special wire ropes. This ensures that we can count on the costing, scheduling, quality and reliability of our starting material – a significant aspect of our manufacture.

The consistently high quality of our products is guaranteed by a quality management system, which encompasses the entire manufacturing process right from the raw material through to delivery.
